Al-Qaeda vs. PKK on Turkey-Syria Border
Murat Yetkin, Al Monitor
Both al-Qaeda and the PKK [Kurdistan Workers Party] are not easy adversaries. Ankara can’t do much except watch the war on the Turkish-Syrian border. Yesterday [Aug. 12], 3,000 people entered Turkey through the Akcakale border crossing between Turkey and Syria, following the intensification of artillery fire in clashes at Tel Abyad, a Syrian town directly facing the Turkish city of Akcakale.
TAGGED: Al Qaeda, PKK, Turkey, Syria, Jabhat Al-Nusra
