Turkey Scrambles Jets After Border Clashes

Three F-16 jets, fully armed and loaded, took off from the south eastern Turkish province of Diyarbakır

Turkey has scrambled three fighter jets following clashes between Kurdish militants linked to the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and Al-Qaeda affiliated radicals close to the Turkish-Syrian border, Turkey's Today's Zaman reported.

 

Three F-16 jets, fully armed and loaded, took off from the south eastern Turkish province of Diyarbakır on Monday to conduct reconnaissance flights over the Turkish-Syrian border after clashes between PYD militants and fighters with the Nusra Front intensified.

 

The clashes resumed in the town of Ras al-Ain on the Syrian border, just across from Turkey's Ceylanpınar district. Kurdish militants took control of the town following heavy clashes this summer.
