ANKARA, Aug. 27 (Xinhua) -- Turkish warplanes have struck the People's Protection Units (YPG) militants near the Syrian town of Jarablus on Saturday, Turkish Daily Sabah reported.
The airstrikes were launched at 10:00 a.m. local time (7:00 a.m. GMT) eight kilometres south of Jarablus, according to the report.
Meanwhile, six more Turkish tanks enter Syria form southeastern Turkish province of Gaziantep on early Saturday, witnesses told local media.
The Turkish military, which entered the Syrian town of Jarablus as part of an operation to back Syrian rebels sweep Islamic State (IS) militants off the border, hit on Friday the Syrian Kurdish militants by artillery fires.
The YPG, a part of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) alliance, has been a partner in the U.S.-led campaign against the IS in Syria.
Ankara has frequently voiced its concern over the YPG's activity along the Turkish border and has been rigid in its stance in not allowing the militant group to establish any kind of de facto Kurdish state in northern Syria.
The Turkish government claims the PYD enjoys close connections with the PKK, including military and ammunition support through underground tunnels.
