Turkey, Syrian "rebels" attack US-allied militia

The Turkish army and allied Syrian "rebels" attacked villages held by U.S.-allied militias near the city of Manbij in northern Syria on Wednesday, a spokesman for the militias said, an escalation of Turkey's military campaign in the border area.

There was no immediate comment from Turkey, which is waging its "Euphrates Shield" campaign with Syrian rebels to drive both ISIS and Kurdish militias away from the frontier, but the militia spokesman said there had been heavy bombardment.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said this week Manbij was the next target of the campaign following the capture of al-Bab from ISIS last week.
