Turkey blamed the Kurds for the explosion in Northern Syria

The Turkish defense Ministry has blamed the Kurdistan Workers ‘ Party (PKK) and its associated Syrian Kurdish self-defense forces (YPG) for an improvised explosive device explosion in Syria’s RAS al-Ain that killed five people and injured 12.

“The PKK/YPG terrorist organization has again targeted civilians to undermine the atmosphere of peace and trust in the area of operation Source of peace. Terrorists detonated an improvised explosive device in the center of RAS al-Ain on Sunday, killing five and wounding 12 civilians,” the Turkish military Ministry said.

On October 17, 2019, the United States and Turkey announced that they had agreed to suspend Turkey’s “Source of peace” military operation in northeastern Syria for 120 hours and withdraw Kurdish forces from the 30-kilometer buffer zone on the Syrian-Turkish border, which Ankara intended to control independently. Later, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that the United States has not fully fulfilled its obligations to Turkey in the framework of agreements on Syria, and Ankara is not ready to compromise.
