The Democratic Union is regarded as a terrorist organization in Turkey.
Official: Loud Blast in Southern Turkey May Have Been Military Jets
A loud blast heard in Gaziantep, in southeastern Turkey near the Syrian border, may have been caused by jets taking part in Turkish military efforts in nearby northern Syria, Turkish officials said late Friday.Previously
Police and firefighting teams investigated the sound, according to Turkey's Anadolu news agency.
The Gaziantep Province governor's office released a statement that said the incident caused no injuries, deaths or property damage.
"This sound could have been caused by warplanes involved in the Euphrates Shield operation going over the usual noise limit. We will give further details later," the governor said.
Tensions are high in Gaziantep. The area borders Syria where Turkish troops have taken part in military efforts to push Islamic State (IS) militants and Kurdish militia from the region.

Perhaps THIS is why Putin and Erdogan have so much to talk about:
Maybe Syria didn't need the assistance. Taking Aleppo is ugly work.
I agree that it was the US that attacked the Turkish troops- The US made clear they were displeased with Turkey's operation and were officially distancing themselves from it. If Syria is teaming up with the Kurds- Bad move. It is a mistake they will pay dearly for and suggests Syria's leadership is accepting some degree of balkanization.
Nothing is ever black and white. There are many shades of grey.
Greencrow has raised the spectre of the no fly zone, yet again-
I'm very saddened to read that :(
That will affect Turkey
As the middle east/north africa remake marches on... Yes, this is bigger then Syria. As repeatedly stated here!
