Turkish Armed Forces Now Less Than Mile Away From Syria's Afrin

Turkey Opposition member questions US support for PKK

As part of its "Olive Branch" military operation, the Turkish military and its allies, the Free Syrian Army and several Islamist armed groups, have nearly completed the siege of Afrin and are preparing to enter the city, but were waiting for the population to leave through a humanitarian corridor provided by them. "As SYPG and JAS, we will launch a new group of human shields against the invasion of the Cizirê region and the Firat (Euphrates) region".

The PKK's youth organization threatened to carry out more violent attacks against Turkish targets in Germany, to protest Turkey's ongoing military operation in northwestern Syria. Unfortunately, until now, there has not been a positive word or voice. North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is an Alliance that was founded by 11 European countries and the U.S.in 1949 which today consists of 29 independent member countries. The latter has been fighting for an autonomous region inside Turkey since 1984. The document, however, only stated that the ceasefire did not apply to such groups as Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS), Al-Qaeda and Al-Nusra front, and did not describe any Kurdish militias as terrorists.




When attempting to justify their offensive, authorities of Turkey sustain they combat the Units of Popular Protection in Syrian soil, as that organization, considered terrorist by Ankara, is an ally of the Workers' Party of Kurdistan, which has operated south of Turkey for several years. A report in Aljazeera says that residents of Afrin plan on creating a human chain to protect YPG fighters against Turkey's assault on the city.

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.

Later, the base became an important military zone for the YPG/PKK terrorists.
