Damascus, April 10 (IANS) The Turkish forces shelled positions of the Kurdish forces in northern Syria, a war monitor reported.

On Thursday, the Turkish forces fired on the Kurdish positions in a number of areas in the northern countryside of Aleppo province in northern Syria, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, reported Xinhua news agency.
The UK-based watchdog group said the Turkish forces fired heavy artillery on Kurdish forces’ positions in the northern countryside of Aleppo.
Turkey has been targeting positions of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) since last October as Turkey deems the Kurdish militia as a terrorist group due to its links with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which is banned in Turkey.
