Erdogan Slams NATO For Lack Of Support In Syria

At least seven suspects held in Turkey for PKK terror propaganda

Turkey views the YPG as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has fought a three-decade insurgency in Turkey and is deemed a terrorist group by the United States, the European Union and Turkey.

During the campaign it has managed to gain control over all the Afrin region's border areas with Turkey, including several small towns and a large number of villages.

Foreigners who returned to their home countries, after completing their undergraduate and graduate studies in Turkey, have voiced support for Operation Olive Branch in northwestern Syria.

Turkey's leader has scorched North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over their failure to support his "counter-terrorist" operation in the Kurdish-held Syrian region of Afrin, but expressed gratitude that they at least had no guts to openly oppose Ankara.

Operation Olive Branch was launched by Turkey on January 20 to remove the PKK/PYD/YPG/KCK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin in northwestern Syria. But seeing Turkey's adamant position, they did not find [the] resolve to do so, "he added".

He failed, but while he and the Browns slid toward ignominy, Kizer never complained, pointed fingers or made excuses. Jackson fully expected Kizer to struggle in his first year and those fears played out week after week.

The Syrian regime has chosen to ally itself with the Kurdish YPG in its fight against Turkey in Afrin, despite being at odds elsewhere in Syria. When Ankara reaches it, the troops will be pulled out of the country, he stated.

Erdoğan said North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member Turkey sent troops to conflict zones when requested - giving the examples of Somalia, Afghanistan and the Balkan region - but did not receive necessary support for its Afrin mission in return.

"Turkey's goal is not capture of the territories of the other states, but only elimination of the terrorism threat in the region". The recent UNSC resolution, which urged a 30-days Syria-wide ceasefire, has been also used to call upon Erdogan to halt the invasion.

Turkey has been complaining for years that the USA was too cozy with the Kurds, insisting the group are a "terrorist" organization. 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.
