Four drones deployed from the Incirlik air base, a launching point for U.S.-led coalition forces in southern Turkey, took part in the operation and killed 29 militants.

The air strikes were informed by intelligence gathered by the Turkish army, the private Dogan news agency reported.

The remaining 34 ISIS fighters were "neutralized" by rocket fire and artillery shelling from Turkey, according to Anadolu Agency.

And thanks to Turkey for declaring war on one group of Kurd's, and willing to see a mass slaughter at Kobani as they stood by.

On 26 January 2015, the YPG, along with the FSA and Peshmerga reinforcements and the continued US-led airstrikes, began to retake the city, driving ISIL into a steady retreat. The city of Kobanî was fully recaptured on 27 January; however, most of the remaining villages in the Kobanî Canton remained under ISIL control.[10][65] Kurdish militia along with allied Arab armed groups backed by further airstrikes, then made rapid advances in rural Kobanî, with ISIL withdrawing 25 km from the city of Kobanî by 2 February.[66][67] By late April 2015, ISIL had lost almost all of the villages it had captured in the Canton, but maintained control of a few dozen villages it seized in the northwestern part of the Ar-Raqqah Governorate.[11]

Lets go back to why USA supports a terrorist organisation that attacks on civilians and security forces in Turkey, which is NATO member.

Would you be happy if Turkey would supply weapons, and give other supports to Al-Qaeda so That Al-Qaeda attacks in Turkey more brutal than ever?

Even US defense chief Ashton Carter admits PYD and PKK link in the testimony.

After the ceasefire with the Kurds in Turkey, Erdogan used a war to gain election results and a win.
He has helped create many of the problems with the Kurd's.
For years ISIL crossed the Turkish border with impunity. Turkey bout oil, allowed other supplies thru, including thousand's of ISIL recruits easy access to Iraq.
I am sure there is enough blame to go around.
