U.S. troops patrolling Turkish-Syrian border

Several photos of U.S. service personnel on armored vehicles in the area have appeared on Twitter. Media reports said the convoy was heading to southeastern Şanlırufa province from Kilis in the west.

The bombings reportedly killed 40 Kurdish fighters in Iraq and 30 in Syria. Immediately after the strike, the leaders of our forces - known as the People's Protection Groups, or YPG - rushed from their operations center near Raqqa, where they've been working with the USA military to push the Islamic State out of its Syrian stronghold, to view the site of the attack. "Better they live in fear than we have worries".

Turkish Armed Forces struck back at positions of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) terrorist group in Northern Syria, Turkey's General Staff said in a message.

The deployment followed Turkish airstrikes which wounded 18 members of the YPG, .

A Turkish newspaper has reported that the Iranian founder of a Farsi-language satellite television network had been shot dead in Istanbul, along with aKuwaiti business partner, late on Saturday.

Such active military actions on the part of the Turkish leadership against the only armed formation in the northeast of Syria that is capable to resist ISIS have been heavily criticized by the worldwide community including Turkey's main North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners.

Erdogan hinted his country is also ready to repeat it attacks in Sinjar, Iraq, to prevent it from turning into a base for the Kurdish militia.

Erdogan on Saturday said he would present Trump at their meeting next month with the "documents" proving YPG's links to the PKK, which is designated as a terror group by Ankara and Washington. Instead of working with the Syrian Kurds, Turkey is pressing the U.S.to let its army join the campaign for Raqqa, the self-proclaimed capital of IS. He said us forces will also deploy as a separation force in areas where the Turkish-backed Syrian fighting forces and the Kurdish forces meet.

A USA airlift of artillery and special forces advisers behind Islamic State lines in March was a turning point in the Tabqa offensive and underscored the closeness between Washington and the Syrian Democratic Forces. He said the objective of the military reinforcement was not clear.

"We hope that this military mobilization is not meant to provoke our forces or for another goal linked to entering Syrian territories".

Uzumcu said that the area of the town of Khan Sheikhoun where the incident happened is controlled by opposition rebels, adding that the watchdog experts will "need to strike some deals with them", such as a temporary ceasefire, to assure the team's safety before it can deploy.

Associated Press writer Sarah El Deeb contributed from Beirut.

Tayyip Erdogan said the United States support for Kurdish militia fighters inside Syria was damaging solidarity between Washington and Ankara. "Across the board, our new President is doing exactly what he said he would do", the Vice President said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his wife Emine Erdogan sit inside their vehicle after their arrival at the airport in New Delhi, India, April 30, 2017.

The Turkish airstrikes also wounded 18 members of the USA -backed People's Protection Units, or Y.P.G., were criticized by both the US and Russian Federation. But it has complicated relations with Turkey, which views the group's Kurdish component as an extension of a terror group operating inside Turkey's own borders.
