Turkey mistakenly attacks US Special Forces, officials say
Turkey mistakenly attacks US Special Forces, officials say
Turkey has conducted an attack against US special forces in Syria only a few days after US President Donald Trump’s agreement with the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan to pull the US troops out of Syria, Newsweek reported Saturday.

Pentagon stated that “U.S. troops in the vicinity of Kobani came under artillery fire from Turkish positions at approximately 9 p.m. local Oct. 11.”

According to both Kurdish and Pentagon officials, Turkey was conducting an operation “Peace Spring” when attacked Kobani, a city in northern Syria. The US forces did not take any responsive measures and withdrew once the attack was over.

It has been noticed that Turkish forces must have been aware that the positions were backed by the US troops. However, Turkey denied that their target was the US special forces. The defense Ministry of Turkey has issued a statement saying that “Turkish border outposts south of Suruc came under Dochka and mortar fire from the hills located approximately 1,000 meters southwest of a US observation post.”

“In self-defense, reciprocal fire was opened on the terrorist positions of the attack. Turkey did not open fire at the U.S. observation post in any way,” the statement reads. “All precautions were taken prior to opening fire in order to prevent any harm to the U.S. base. As a precaution, we ceased fire upon receiving information from the U.S. We firmly reject the claim that U.S. or Coalition forces were fired upon.”
