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

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

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday said his forces would be inside Afrin in a matter of days, but for humanitarian reasons they were taking their time to strategize and prevent civilian deaths.

Turkish military and its ally the Free Syrian Army (FSA) made rapid advances during its operation in Syria's Afrin region on Monday, only 1.5 km away from its city center, state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

People in Syria and out have reportedly offered to stand between the YPG and Turkish forces set to storm the city.

A joint statement by the Initiative for the Unity and Solidarity of Peoples (SYPG) and the Free Socialist Women (JAS) says "We are now on the 51st day of our great resistance against the attack of the colonialist and fascist Turkish state on our canton Afrin".

Trump Calls Chuck Todd A 'Son Of AB**ch'
And what did NBC's Chuck Todd have to say about Trump's latest remarks? "He's a sleeping son of a b**ch ". It can't be pleasant to be attacked by the president of the United States, even if you don't like him.

Washington has repeatedly called upon Turkey to stop its "aggression" against the Afrin region, omitting the fact that the US-led coalition itself spent years in Syria without any invitation from the government or worldwide approval.

Erdogan asked. "We came in response to the calls on Afghanistan, Somalia and the Balkans, and now I am making the call, let's go to Syria". The Kurdish Red Crescent Moon estimates the number at 232 civilians killed, including 35 children and 29 women.

The YPG and allied forces, under the umbrella organization the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), control over 60 percent of the Syrian border with Turkey, which has raised security concerns in Ankara.

Sensex mimics global markets, rises 600 points
All but three stocks closed lower on the Nifty 50 index, with Bharti Airtel Ltd and ITC Ltd among the top percentage gainers. On BSE, 1,370 shares advanced and 1,344 shares declined.

However, it remains to be seen if the USA 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.

A total of 7,858 people were also detained over the week, while trying to cross the Turkish borders illegally.

In January the United Nations has said 15,000 people have been displaced from inside Afrin.
