Pro-Kurdish Demonstrators Clash With Turkish Supporters, German Police At Duesseldorf Airport

At least seven suspects held in Turkey for PKK terror propaganda

The military base extending up to three kilometres northeast of Afrin's city centre has been cleared of terrorists as reported by Anadolu Agency.

Pro-Turkish sources assured, for their part, that until this date the army of the Euroasian country seized from the militia 193 places, of them five cities, 155 villages and 33 mountainous elevations.

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.

People in Syria and out have reportedly offered to stand between the YPG and Turkish forces set to storm the city. "We're in these villages temporarily, we're not here to occupy but to liberate", he said.

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 global approval.

"Hey NATO where are you?"

But supporters of the Turkish military operation call this a crime war and blame the YPG of forcing population to act as human shields.

Steel tariffs of 25 per cent on "foreign steel" were announced by American President Donald Trump this afternoon. He insisted that domestic metals production was vital to national security.

On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch to clear YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin, northwestern Syria. The Kurdish Red Crescent Moon estimates the number at 232 civilians killed, including 35 children and 29 women.

The aim of the operation is to "free" the area from the YPG, a Kurdish militia the Turkish government considers the Syrian branch of the outlawed rebel group the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and a terrorist organization.

The YPG is regarded by Turkey as the Syrian affiliate of the the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and European Union.

Qamishli is seen as the main town of the YPG-controlled region.

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

"In fact, they would openly oppose Turkey in Syria if they could".
