YPG Rocket Attack Kills One Turkish Soldier.. Injures Three

Link

BBC 
One Turkish soldier was killed and three others were injured in a rocket attack by the U.S.-sponsored YPG terror group, launched against two tanks taking part in Turkey's military offensive against Daesh in the Syrian town of Jarablus.
This isn't going to sit well with the Turkish population. Their NATO 'ally' supplied rockets used to  kill Turkish soldiers....
I've no doubt that the US or NATO allies did indeed supply the rockets to YPG/PKK to kill whoever the Kurds choose to kill. 
What happened to the US instructing YPG/PKK to retreat?
What about Kerry's claim the US does not support an independent Kurdistan?
All actions seem to contradict US claims.
The casualties are the first for Turkey since the launch of Operation Euphrates Shield to rid the border region of terrorists on Wednesday.
Speaking on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, the official said rockets were launched at two Turkish tanks , the northern Syrian city freed from Daesh.
The tanks were hit 7 kilometers south of Jarablus, where Turkish forces helped the Free Syrian Army (FSA) to clear Daesh terrorists from the area. The rockets had been fired from an area where the YPG militia has been active.
Ankara has frequently voiced its concern over the activity of PYD's armed People's Protection Units' (YPG) along the Turkish border, and has been rigid in its stance of not allowing the PYD terrorist group to found any kind of de facto Kurdish state in northern Syria.
Despite consistent U.S. calls to retreat, PYD units have been moving to the east of the Euphrates river, and the group has continued its offenses amid the conflict between Turkish-backed moderate opposition forces and Daesh terrorists.

The YPG — the Syrian affiliate of the terrorist PKK — has been expanding its dominance west of the Euphrates River since late December, reinforcing its presence in the region using the fight against Daesh as a pretext.

KurdIShIS- It's been obvious for so long now- Only the willfully blind choose not to see.

    Not sure about the source, since I haven't visited it more than a few times. If true however, it seems Erdogan is about to prove my point. That being he is not to be trusted. He is still firmly under the US/NATO boot heel. Wonder by what figure his personal off-shore account has grown since the bogus reapproachment with his Russian friends?

      multiple sources including the kremlin reporting on Erdogan and Putin discussing the situation in Syria

      the date on that article is from February of this year- more then six months old

      "“The Russians are trying to hide their crimes in Syria,” said a senior official in Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu’s office."

      Davutoglu is not Prime Minister

    Erdogan even received kind words and make-up kisses from his guaranteed side income source, the EU vassal society.

    1. Recall the US- Biden telling the YPG/PKK to move east of the Euphrates? And they didn't. And they aren't going to. I would expect no less but duplicity from Europe, US vassals.

  3. Should have been more clear. You asked previously who I was referring to about playing both sides against the middle. The old article was meant to provide evidence that Erdogan has been waffleing between one side and the other for as long as the destruction of the Syrian state was begun. Give me a litle credit as far as my being a bit aware of the who"s and what's.
    I'm becoming convinced most of the major players in the Syrian conflict are acting in a duplicitous manner.

    1. Hi Charles:
      I wasn't sure what you were getting at, thanks for clarifying

      There all acting out of their own interests, that's how I see it
