Turkey: Smoke rises as Turkish jets bomb targets in Syria

Footage shot from near Kilis in Turkey shows smoke rising just over the border in Syria on Wednesday, after Turkish aircraft reportedly attacked Kurdish-held positions in the border region between Turkey and its neighbour.

Turkey has been bombing targets in and around Afrin as part of operation 'Olive Branch' since January 20, targeting Kurdish militants across the border.

Turkey views the Kurdish YPG militia, which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned militant group the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
