After a respite of a few hours, a Turkish drone attacked Kurdish military positions in the northeast Syrian province of Hassaké on Thursday, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Turkish artillery, for its part, attacked seven towns near the city of Kobane, east of Aleppo, and a dozen towns and military infrastructure along the front line that separates the regions controlled by Ankara and the administered territories. by Kurdish forces in north and north-east Syria.

The Turkish shelling does not distinguish between Kurdish fighters and the Syrian government army, which share the same front against the rebels near Ankara and the Turkish army.

The escalation in these regions, where many actors are entangled, follows the Istanbul attack on November 13, attributed by the Turkish authorities to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Since this explosion that killed six people and injured 80, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has threatened to launch a ground offensive against Kurdish strongholds in Syria.

Despite repeated warnings from the United States, protectors of Kurdish forces, and Russia, an ally of the Syrian government, the Turkish army continues to increase pressure on the ground.
