International forces that have been supporting the terrorist organizations are determined to maintain their support aiming to form a terror corridor between Afrin and Kobane in Syria and intensified their efforts around al-Bab province of Syria.

United States-backed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK)-affiliated Democratic Union Party (PYD) along with Iran-backed Assad regime forces, a Shi'ite militia and Hezbollah terrorists are cooperating in confronting the Free Syrian Army (FSA) forces that are supported by Turkey, which aims to sweep all the terrorist elements out of northern Syria.

PKK/PYD struggle against FSA to form terror corridor

PKK/PYD is attempting to proceed east from Afrin, after the FSA regained the control of al-Kufayr, al-Azraq and al-Ghuz districts, a move to prevent the terror corridor from being formed by PKK/PYD.

Instead of fighting against Daesh, Iran and the US-supported groups are putting all their efforts into confronting the FSA, particularly around al-Bab, while Assad forces store up weapons in the Tal Meskur, Katar, Ayasyiyah and Ayn al-Baida neighborhoods, which are located south of al-Bab.

The Assad regime, which is cooperating with terrorist organizations against the moderate Syrian opposition is planning to head off FSA soldiers to prevent them from connecting to Turkmen districts before Aleppo through Tell Rifat and Azaz.

Four terrorists killed in Turkish airstrike

Turkish jets destroyed 17 Daesh targets on Sunday near Al-Bab, northern Syria, under its ongoing Operation Euphrates Shield.

During the airstrike, as many as four PKK/PYD terrorists were killed and 13 others were wounded.

Targets were located in the towns of Qabasin and Suflaniyah northeast of the city of Al-Bab in northern Syria.

Turkey's Operation Euphrates Shield was launched in late August to rid the northern Syrian border area of terrorists.

Under the operation, around 1,760 square kilometers (680 square miles) of land in northern Syria have been cleared of Daesh terrorists.

Turkey against all terrorists in Syria

The Turkish military on August 24 launched the operation, dubbed 'Euphrates Shield', which targets the PKK and its affiliated terrorist organizations along with Daesh terrorists.

Ankara denounces the YPG as an affiliate of the PKK terrorists, which has been conducting terrorist attacks targeting Turkey for three decades and which is designated as a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States and the European Union.

However, Washington insists on indicating that YPG is their ally against Daesh, despite Turkey's warnings.
