Turkey denies attacking US troops in Syria

ANKAR: The Turkish government on Saturday denied that its Army had launched attacks on US special forces deployed in northeastern Syria, as it was earlier claimed by the Pentagon. “Attacking US forces is out of the question. There’s the necessary coordination between our forces and the Americans,” Turkey’s Defence Minister, Hulusi Akar, said at a press conference held at the military central command in Sanliurfa, about 50 m from the Turkish-Syrian border. Pentagon sources told Efe news on Friday night that Turkish artillery fire had landed near the US base near the Syrian border city of Kobane. (IANS)
