According to information gathered by Anadolu Agency from a reliable source in Syria’s Haseke province, the U.S. army delivered the combat and mine resistant vehicles via the Semalka border crossing at the Iraq-Syria border.
The terrorist organization plans to dispatch the vehicles and hundreds of militants to Afrin district in Aleppo province near the Turkish border, the source added.
The PKK/PYD needs to use the Aleppo corridor controlled by the Bashar al-Assad regime and Iran-backed groups for delivering the vehicles.
The PYD and its military wing YPG are Syrian branches of the PKK, which has waged a war against Turkey for more than 30 years.
Since the PKK launched its terror campaign in Turkey in 1984, tens of thousands of people have been killed, including more than 1,200 since July 2015 alone.
The U.S. and the coalition have largely ignored the PYD/PYG links to the PKK, which the U.S., EU and Turkey list as a terrorist group.
Turkey cites the PYD’s deep ties with the terrorist PKK -- a group responsible for tens of thousands of deaths in Turkey -- in opposing U.S. cooperation with the PKK/PYD. The U.S. sees the PKK as terrorist but its Syrian PYD offshoot as a “reliable partner” against Daesh.
