Turkish military FSA liberate 7 more villages in Afrin

Turkey launched its operation seeking to oust Kurdish People s Protection Units (YPG) militia from the Afrin region of northern Syria on January 20 and Erdogan said Thursday its forces could now enter Afrin town at "any moment".

Turkish soldiers and warplanes have made significant advances in the countryside of the border region of northwest Syria since launching an offensive in January that put Turkey at odds with its global partners. Turkey sees the YPG as a "terrorist" group.

Turkish armed forces are besieging the Syrian Kurdish-controlled district of Afrin in northern Syria, Turkey's president has said.

"Then we will also clear Manbij, Ayn al-Arab, Tal Abyad, Resulayn and Kamisli of terrorists, Erdogan added, naming other Syria cities near Turkey's borders". As of now, we have Afrin encircled.


Earlier this month, Erdogan accused US President Donald Trump and his predecessor Barack Obama of failing to tell the truth over US support for the YPG.

"The number of neutralized terrorists in Afrin has risen to 3,213".

Despite encountering fierce resistance - which has caused the death of 42 Turkish troops - Turkey's military and its Syrian allies appear to have gained new momentum in the last weeks.

Turkey's foreign minister says his government hopes that a cross-border military offensive in a Syrian Kurdish-held enclave will end before May.


On Saturday, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said the Turkish forces were now four kilometres (2.5 miles) from Afrin town.

Euphrates Shield, which began in August in 2016 and ended in March 2017, eliminated terrorists along the Syrian border.

Turkey is now engaged in a cross-border offensive in Syria to drive out Kurdish fighters it considers to be an extension of the PKK.
