The man leading the Kurdistan Workers' Party has accused Turkey of trying to protect the Islamic State group by attacking Kurdish fighters.

Cemil Bayik told the media, that he believed President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wanted IS to succeed to prevent Kurdish gains.

Kurdish fighters - among them the PKK - have secured significant victories against IS militants in Syria and Iraq.

But Turkey, like a number of Western countries, considers the PKK a terrorist organization.
