Iran, Russia, Turkey Start Expert-Level Meeting on Syria in Tehran

The Turkish military's leadership has seen substantial reshuffling in the past few days, but the focus seems to be the same: fighting Kurds.

Turkey views the YPG as a terrorist group and an extension of the PKK, which has been trying to set up its own Kurdish state within Turkey for decades.

The supplies, consisting of 112 fuel tankers, covered trucks and low-loaders carrying military Humvees, were observed by an Anadolu Agency correspondent as it passed through Syria's Hasakah province, according to the report.

The video shows YPG fighters lying on a concrete platform and then firing an anti-tank missile at the tank. However, the YPG's release of a video showing the deployment of an ATGM system is controversial, especially because the White House approved the arming of the group in May despite protests from the Turkish government.

Turkish troops and YPG have exchanged fire in the region several times in recent months and Turkey has threatened to launch another cross-border offensive.

"We will not leave the [YPG] organization in peace in both Iraq and Syria", Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday.

Turkish authorities announced construction of a 144-kilometre (80-mile) long barrier in May as a means of blocking cross-border movements by members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). "We will make new and important moves soon", he said. Turkey's NATO allies do not regard the YPG as a terror organisation.

The battle for Raqqa has been underway since June, and a senior US official said Friday that 2,000 Islamic State fighters are believed to be still defending positions and "fighting for every last block" in the city.

Last month, Turkey's official Anadolu Agency wire service published a detailed map revealing the locations of USA airports, military bases, and personnel in Syria in the Raqqa countryside.
