Turkey unhappy with US for supporting Kurds

  • Turkey, on Friday, accused the US for being hypocrite after US commandos were pictured supporting a major ground offensive led by a Kurdish militia - Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG). This particular group has been declared as a terrorist group by Ankara. Turkish authorities said it was unacceptable that the US troops were wearing the insignia of the terror group which is accused of carrying out attacks inside Turkey. The group is also said to be the Syrian branch of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) which has been fighting against Turkey for more than three decades.
