Turkish jets hit PKK targets, soldiers killed in southeast| Reuters

DIYARBAKIR Turkish warplanes hit Kurdish rebel targets in southeastern Turkey on Tuesday, Dogan news agency reported, and three soldiers were killed in two separate attacks in a neighbouring province, the military said. Turkish F-16 jets carried out a 35-minute assault on Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) targets in Daglica, in Hakkari Province near the border with Iraq, whose northern mountains offer a relatively safe base for the insurgents. The air strikes came after two soldiers were killed by a remote-controlled mine in the neighbouring province of Sirnak #Syria #Technology #Europe #Turkey #Latin America #crisis #opinion

Kurdish militia in Syria accuses Turkey of provocative attacks| Reuters

BEIRUT Kurdish militia fighting Islamic State in Syria accused Turkey on Saturday of targeting it at least four times in the past week, calling the attacks provocative and hostile. Turkey began a campaign of air strikes on Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) camps in northern Iraq and Islamic State fighters in Syria last Friday, in what Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has called a "synchronised fight against terror" #India #Middle East #markets #United Kingdom #Turkey #Latin America #crisis

Al Qaeda in Syria says detains U.S.-trained rebels| Reuters

BEIRUT Al Qaeda's Syria wing said on Friday it had detained members of a Syrian rebel group who had just returned from U.S. training, in a direct challenge to Washington's plan to train and equip insurgents to combat the hard-line Islamic State group. In a statement that appeared to contradict comments from the Pentagon, Nusra Front said the men it was holding had entered Syria several days prior and had been trained under the supervision of the Central Intelligence Agency. #United States #Syria #Middle East #markets #Turkey #Latin America

ANKARA Saboteurs attacked a pipeline carrying natural gas from Iran to Turkey in Turkey's eastern province of Agri late on Monday, halting the flow, Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz and state gas company Botas said. There was no claim of responsibility so far, but the attack bore the hallmark of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), whose camps in northern Iraq have been bombed by the Turkish air force in recent days and which has struck the pipeline before #Business #India #Islam #Middle East #Argentina #Turkey

Turkey, U.S. aim for zone cleared of Islamic State in northern Syria| Reuters

ISTANBUL/WASHINGTON Turkey and the United States are working on plans to provide air cover for Syrian rebels and jointly sweep Islamic State fighters from a strip of land along the Turkish border, bolstering the NATO member's security and possibly providing a safe haven for civilians. Long a reluctant member of the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State, Turkey last week made a dramatic turnaround by granting the alliance access to its air bases and bombarding targets in Syria linked to the jihadist movement. #United States #Europe #markets #Crime #Turkey #crisis
