Den tyrkiske hæren bombet fredag den kurdiske byen Kobane hvor det befinner seg amerikanske soldater. Tyrkerne beklaget og sa det var en feil, men anonyme kilder tror ikke det var feilbombing.

Amerikanerne har gitt tyrkiske styrker koordinatene og det skal ikke være mulig med feilbombing.

However journalists in the region cite other officials who say it is impossible it was a mistake.

‘They know we are there, we told them our position. There’s no other target in the area. They’re trying to drive us out. If Turkey can get us to leave so they can siege Kobane, it’s all over,’ one Coalition officer told Telegraph reporter Josie Ensor. 

The unnamed official said the shelling was so heavy, US forces considered returning fire.
