Turkey shelled Kurdish militia fighters in Syria on August 26 on the second day of a major military operation inside the country, saying they were failing to observe a deal with the US to stop advancing in jihadist-held territory.


Three soldiers, part of a Turkish military campaign in northern Syria against the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), were injured in a rocket attack launched by the terrorist group on Friday.

According to a statement from the Turkish Chief of General Staff on Friday, three military personnel were wounded in the attack, with one in critical condition.

The operation, known as Euphrates Shield, is now in its second month.
