  • Turkish forces have surrounded Afrin city in Syria operation, says state media

The PKK, considered a terrorist organisation by the United States, the European Union and Turkey, has waged a three-decade insurgency in Turkey's largely Kurdish southeast that has killed some 40,000 people.

The defeat of ISIS has been welcomed in many parts of Syria and Kurdish militia have staked their right to control the regions in East Syria which had a Kurdish majority population.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members not only show no support towards Turkey's Operation Olive Branch and would even openly oppose Ankara's actions in Syria, but did not have the guts to do so, Erdogan claimed.

Ankara's offensive on the Kurdish-held enclave in northwestern Syria is now in its 51st day as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to increase the operation beyond Afrin.

The Turkish Armed Forces and Free Syrian Army (FSA) liberated five more villages in Syria's northwestern Afrin region on Sunday.

However, it remains to be seen if the US allows Turkey to continue with its offensive or intervenes to protect the force that is vital to maintaining control of huge swathes of ungoverned Syria. "But seeing Turkey's adamant position, they did not find [the] resolve to do so", the president said.

TAF uses ‘wasp’ drone to monitor PKK terrorists in Afrin

According to RT, the Turkish leader also reiterated his earlier statements, that his only goal in Syria was the "fight against terrorism".

People are planning to act as human shields in an effort to protect the Syrian city of Afrin as the Turkish military and its allied forces prepare to capture the Kurdish-controlled urban centre.

He said Turkey sent troops to conflict zones when requested, but did not receive support in return.

"We are advancing toward Afrin [city center]".

Ibrahim Ramazani, from Iran, said terrorists who Turkey had fought against are now trying to establish terror corridors at its borders. Some US-backed militias in Syria have switched their priorities from fighting IS terrorists to battling Turkish troops and affiliated FSA militants.
