WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States on Monday urged de-escalation of violence in Syria, U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price said in a statement, after tit-for-tat attacks by Turkey’s military and a Kurdish militia.

Price also said the United States continued to oppose “any uncoordinated military action in Iraq that violates Iraq’s sovereignty.”
