To the press and the public!
While our forces are leading a fierce struggle against the ISIS terrorist organization, the invader Turkish army targeted our positions along the border, violating all military engagement rules.
We, as the Syrian Democratic Forces, emphasize that we have the right to retaliate against any attack on our lands and, if necessary, we will not refrain from exercising this right.
In this context, on October 31st, the invader Turkish army violated our borders, shelling the civilian population of Selim village in the Kobane region. In accordance with the rules of military engagement, our forces carried out an action. As a result, a Turkish military vehicle was destroyed.
