ISTANBUL, Oct. 10 (Reuters / EP) –
At least two people have been injured in southern Turkey by the impact of rockets and mortar shells fired from neighboring Syria, where Turkish forces began a military offensive against Kurdish militias on Wednesday, according to Anatolia news agency.
The projectiles would have departed from areas controlled precisely by these militias and have fallen in the towns of Akcakale, Birecik, Ceylanpinar and Nusaybin.
Turkish President Recepp Tayyip Erdogan announced on Wednesday the start of the 'Peace Spring' operation in northeastern Syria against Syrian Kurdish militias and Islamic State in this area bordering Turkey. The offensive began with aerial and artillery bombardments, and then went on to a ground operation.
