US State Department spokesperson calls YPG ‘the PKK’

U.S. State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert
U.S. State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert on Jan. 25 referred to the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Syria’s Afrin as “the PKK [outlawed Kurdistan Worker’s Party],” which is recognized as a terrorist organization by the U.S., EU and much of the Western world.

“Turkey has taken its eye off the ball ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant - ISIL] and is going after the PKK this time,” Nauert said in a press conference without a correction, according to state-run Anadolu Agency, referring to Turkey’s ongoing “Operation Olive Branch” in Syria to clear its southern borders of YPG militants.
