Turkey will not allow Syrian town of Azaz to fall to Kurdish militia: PM

KIEV Turkey will not allow Azaz in northern Syria to fall to the Kurdish YPG militia and the group will face the "harshest reaction" if it tries to approach the town again, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Monday.

Speaking to reporters on his plane en route to Ukraine, Davutoglu said YPG fighters would have seized control of Azaz and the town of Tal Rifaat further south had it not been for Turkish artillery shelling them over the weekend.
