ankara - The United States and Russia have protested separately against Turkish air strikes in Syria and Iraq on Wednesday. Moscow called the bombings unacceptable, while the US would have warned before.
Turkish combatants recently polluted Kurdish targets in Iraq and Syria. In those attacks, a number of YPG fighters came alive. The group is in Syria the most important partner of the West in the struggle against Islamic state. Turkey sees an extension of the prohibited PKK in the militias.
An American military spokesman said that US troops were located a few kilometers from one of the places that were bombarded. He complained that the warning about the arriving air attack came too late and was too vague to put in charge of its own men.
'We received the warning less than an hour before the attack was carried out,' said the spokesman. 'In addition, this was a notification. There was no coordination, as you would expect from an ally and partner in the fight against Islamic state. '
The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs also said 'serious concern' about the attacks. 'The fact that Turkish air attacks were carried out on sovereign state territory, whose governments have passed, must be a source of concern,' said the department according to state agency TASS.
