Turkey: Turkish military vehicles head for Syrian border amidst Afrin operations

Turkey, Hassa
January 23, 2018 at 09:30 GMT -00:00 · Published

Turkish military vehicles were seen approaching the Turkish-Syrian border as ground operations against Kurdish forces in the northern Syrian region of Afrin continued on Tuesday.

The operation was launched on Saturday in a bid to oust armed Kurdish groups from Afrin, a region that lies on the border with Turkey.

Turkey considers the Kurdish YPG militia, which is active in northern Syria, to be a terrorist organisation and an extension of the banned militant group the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed to “sort out” the Kurdish enclave of Afrin in a televised broadcast in Ankara on Monday.

Vehículos militares turcos fueron vistos acercándose a la frontera entre Siria y Turquía este martes, mientras continúan las operaciones terrestres contra las fuerzas kurdas en la región de Afrin.

La operación, de nombre “Rama de Olivo”, comenzó el sábado en un intento por expulsar a los grupos kurdos armados de Afrin, una región que se encuentra en la frontera con Turquía.

Turquía ve a la milicia kurda YPG (Unidades de Protección Popular) que opera en el norte de Siria como una extensión del grupo militante Partido de los Trabajadores del Kurdistán (PKK), prohibido y perseguido por las autoridades turcas.

El presidente turco, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, prometió "resolver la situación” en el enclave kurdo de Afrin, durante una transmisión televisiva desde Ankara el lunes.
