US 'deeply concerned' Turkey conducted airstrikes in Syria, Iraq

The United States is "deeply concerned" by Turkish air strikes in Iraq and Syria, the State Department said Tuesday.


"We are very concerned, deeply concerned that Turkey conducted air strikes earlier today in northern Syria as well as northern Iraq without proper coordination either with the United States or the broader global coalition to defeat ISIS," State Department spokesman Mark Toner said, using a different acronym for Daesh.

"We have expressed those concerns to the government of Turkey directly," he added.

A major in the U.S. Marine Corps, Adrian J.T. Rankine-Galloway told Daily Sabah that the ‎airstrikes "were not approved by the Counter ISIS Coalition."

"The airstrikes led to the unfortunate loss of life of our partner forces in the fight against ISIS, including the Kurdish Peshmerga," he added, implying the U.S.' concern about the deaths of YPG militants.
