The Turkish army struck Kurdish targets in northern Syria east of the Euphrates River on Sunday.
Turkey's official Anadolu news agency said that artillery strikes hit positions belonging to the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units, or YPG, in Zor Moghar.
The village in northern Aleppo's countryside is across the Euphrates that separates Turkey-backed Syrian opposition forces and the YPG, which Turkey considers a terror organization linked to an insurgency within its own borders.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Kurdish Hawar news agency also reported the shelling, saying Turkish artillery targeted other villages east of the Euphrates as well. Hawar said there were no reports of casualties.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly warned of expanding military operations along the Syrian border to clear it of "terror."
The Observatory said the rare shelling in the villages near Kobani, a stronghold of the Kurdish fighters, came while Kurdish fighters were on high alert following Turkish threats.

There was a meeting of Turkey, Russia, Germany, France in Istanbul yesterday concerning Syria.
Would like to have been a fly on the wall on that meeting room.
Kurdish Separatists = Terrorists
Turkish Erdoganists=Muslim brotherhood
Muslim brotherhood = all muslims
Kurds = YPG/YPJ
They have never advocated breaking up Syria. They are trying to negotiate with Damascus. And have from the beginning.
They want some autonomy.
Game is not over yet.
He was asking why they are terrorists to Turks - I was replying how the turks see kurds
Yep, Turkey = ISIS, Nusara (al Qaeda), FSA Jihadi Terrorists and Muslim Brotherhood Terrorists. Very bad cocktail.
But the reality of how Turks see the Kurds? They want to kill them all literally or by cultural genocide.
It is Turks who have always practiced Massacre and Genocide upon anyone they chose to act. Even during the Ottoman Empire.
The Turks are pigs and Erdogan is the chief pig.
Yep. He is an Evil Islamist. Just like ISIS.
The Sultan in Waiting.
yeah i know the history.
