A female suicide bomber who blew herself up in the center of one of Turkey's most historic cities this week was linked to Kurdish militants and had also fought in Syria against extremists, a report said Friday.This fits the narrative of the Turkish government that the YPG is the Syrian branch of the PKK, an assertion disputed by Washington which works with the Syrian Kurdish militia as allies in the fight against ISIS.Hurriyet quoted its sources as saying the woman had fought against ISIS in the battle for the Syrian border town of Kobane which was won by the Kurdish militia last year.
