Abdi Ferhad Sahin, a PKK terrorist on one of the most wanted list, was seen on Wednesday standing next to a US commander in Syria's Karachok region, which was bombed in Turkish anti-terror operations against the PKK.

Following a Turkish operation in northern Syria, US commanders visited the area accompanied by the so-called spokesman of the PKK's Syrian affiliate the People's Protection Units (YPG), Redur Xelil and senior PKK terrorist Abdi Ferhan Sahin, which is on the Turkish Interior Ministry's list of most wanted terrorists, with a bounty of four million liras. He was seen briefing the U.S. commanders with the help of an interpreter during the tour.

Sahin is one of the senior members of the terrorist group. He was the member responsible of the PKK's European operations in 1998 when PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan was expelled from Syria. He was also in Kobani during the reconciliation process which was unilaterally broken by the PKK.

The US. later issued a statement expressing "serious concern" of Turkey's anti-terror operations in the region, implying the U.S.'s worries about the death of YPG terrorists, saying "The airstrikes led to the unfortunate loss of life of our partner forces in the fight against ISIS, including the Kurdish Peshmerga."
