Speaking to Europe based News Channel, the leader of the largest Syrian Kurdish party said the attack was expected due to the heavy military deployment at the Turkey-Syria border.
“There is a tense situation. There were already aerial attacks at the border and reconnaissance flights [by Turkey]. We were expecting this, it is not a surprise. They cannot scare the people of Kurdistan with these attacks. The people of Kurdistan are resistant. They will resist these savage attacks and respond in the best way.”
