Kurdish female fighters of the Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) on Monday clashed with Turkish Army forces near the town of Amude, in Syria’s northeastern Hasakah Governorate.
The clashes followed an attempt by the Turkish military troops to enter the Kurdish territory in northeastern Syria, where Turkey continues to build a concrete wall alongside the borderline.
“The Turkish Army on Monday entered the border village of Kharza, located about 10 kilometre west of Amude town. However, a YPJ unit opened fire on the Turkish convoy to prevent its progress,” a YPJ officer told ARA News.
“Clashes broke out in the vicinity of Kharza village, where our forces used heavy machine guns to push the Turkish troops back,” the Kurdish officer said.
