In the morning hours of May 7, the Turkish military carried out four separate air strikes against ISIL positions in northern Syria, as part of a joint effort and intelligence with the U.S.-led coalition forces.

A total of 48 ISIL militants were killed in the airstrikes as Turkish and U.S. officials at the İncirlik Air Base in the southern province of Adana identified ISIL targets in northern Syria upon intelligence.

Meanwhile, cross-border operations continued early on May 8, as Turkish warplanes targeted PKK positions in northern Iraq.

Turkish F-16 and F-4 2020 warplanes destroyed shelters, ammunition stores and weapon pits belonging to the PKK in the Kandil, Metina, Zap and Gara regions of northern Iraq between 2.00 a.m. and 4.30 a.m.

There is also a video footage of operation.

Turkey sees ISIS and PYD as terrorists and fights against them, however, USA sees one as terrorist and one as ally.

USA's ally keeps killings civilians and security forces in Turkey with the help of USA, which uses a base in Turkey to fight against ISIS and support PKK in Syria, and call this '' fight against terrorism''. This is against ATT and thus against article 18 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VCLT).
