    August 27, 2016, 5:04 PM (IDT)

    Two pro-US anti-Assad forces came under several Turkish air bombardments south of the border town of Jarablus Saturday: They were the rebel Syrian Democratic Forces-SDF and the Kurdish YPG militia. The YPG had defied the ultimatum slapped down Wednesday by Ankara and US Vice President Joe Biden to withdraw from northern Syria to east of the Euphrates River. Instead, the two militias fought last Wednesday’s Turkish occupation of Jarablus, renaming their combined force the Jarablus Military Council and dedicated it to evicting the Turkish invaders.
