The Turkish army has retaliated after it said the YPG in Syria fired two mortar shells fired at military posts in Hatay province on April 26.
The Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) said there were no casualties.
CNN Turk said that two Turkish border positions were targeted – one from YPG-held areas and one from Syrian government territory.
Earlier, the YPG shared images of what it said were Turkish artillery attacks on villages in Efrin canton, which borders Turkey’s Hatay.
