Syria: Kurdish YPG militia hit back at Turkish forces on strategic Afrin mountain

Renewed clashes erupted on a strategic Syrian hilltop yesterday as Kurdish militia fighters tried to retake it from Turkish troops.

Turkish military officials cancelled a government-organized press tour to Bursayah Hill, separating the Kurdish-held enclave of Afrin from the Turkish-controlled town of Azaz, due to “security concerns.”

The Turkish attack — and reported shelling in Idlib province by government forces — overshadowed a Russian-hosted peace conference which opened yesterday.

Kurdish YPG militia fighters, who are battling to keep Turkish troops out of the territory they control, are boycotting the conference, holding Moscow responsible for the invasion.
