Turkey is continuing its cross-border military operations against Kurdish forces despite two devastating earthquakes that hit 10 provinces in the country and killed tens of thousands of people on 6 February.
Turkey attacked Kobanê city, under the control of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria on Sunday, ANHA reported.
Although there is no detailed information on the results of the attack, an armed unmanned aerial vehicle belonging to the Turkish forces targeted a vehicle on the road to the Menaz village west of Kobanê.
Meanwhile, the People’s Defence Forces (HPG), the military wing of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), announced that despite their decision to cease military actions due to the earthquakes, Turkish Armed Forces were continuing uninterrupted ground and air attacks against Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq.
Leading PKK commander Cemil Bayık declared an unprecedented armistice on Thursday due to the recent earthquake disaster. Bayık called on Kurdish military forces not to carry out any actions in Turkey and urged solidarity between Kurds and Turks.
In response to Bayık’s call, the HPG issued a statement calling all its forces to obey the armistice declared by the PKK due to the earthquakes.
Turkey had already shelled around the town of Tel Rifat north of Aleppo, on the first night after the earthquakes.
