Ankara. Kurdish militants suspected from Syria fired rockets across the border into Turkey on Monday, killing at least two people and injuring 10 others. Turkish officials gave this information. Turkey’s Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said a rocket attack damaged a high school building and two other houses in the city of Karkamis. Along with this, a truck was also targeted near the Turkey-Syria border gate.
Soylu said a teacher and a child were among the dead. He clarified that a pregnant woman was seriously injured in the attack, who was earlier declared dead. Soylu said a soldier and seven police officers were wounded in separate shelling by suspected Kurdish militants targeting the border area in Kilis. He said that Turkey will give a befitting reply to the attacks.
The rocket attacks came days after Turkey launched deadly airstrikes on northern areas of Syria and Iraq, targeting Kurdish groups. Turkey has blamed Kurdish groups for the November 13 bombings in Istanbul. On November 13, a bomb attack on a main street in Istanbul killed six people and injured more than 80. Turkish officials blamed the attack on the terrorist group PKK and its Syrian affiliate YPG. However, Kurdish terrorist groups denied involvement.
Turkey has launched airstrikes in northern Syria and Iraq, targeting Kurdish groups blamed for last week’s Istanbul bombings. This information was given by the Defense Ministry of Turkey on Sunday. The ministry said in a statement that the warplanes struck targets of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, and the Syrian People’s Protection Units, or YPG.
