  • Turkey will deliver Afrin to its true owners, says Erdoğan

Since the beginning of the operation, Turkish and Free Syrian Army forces have liberated 176 locations, including five town centers, 140 villages, and 31 strategic areas.

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. "Turkey will fight terrorists anywhere they operate", he added. We're also hearing reports of women's groups, socialist groups that are also offering their services - to put themselves between the FSA and the Turks and the YPG. "Where are you? You've invited NATO-member states to Afghanistan", Erdogan said.

"The images of people celebrating the arrival of Turkish soldiers in Afrin says everything, although western media is trying to portray Turkey's presence in Afrin differently", Tasli added. More than one million people are now in Afrin city and villages around it after fleeing the fighting, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor group.

"Of course, Turkey will not permit this", Ramazani said.

"During this operation, we see that Turkey is lending a hand to the oppressed", Tasli said.


"In the Afrin region, the owners of the [liberated] lands have started to come back", he said.

In a statement to the UN Security Council, the Kurdish council that governs Afrin on Sunday demanded a response to the Turkish offensive. Erdogan also denounced North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on Sunday, accusing the Western military alliance of failing to back Turkey's campaign.

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. Is this friendship? Is this North Atlantic Treaty Organisation unity?

In mid-February, Turkey marked 66 years of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation membership. The Turkish government views the YPG as a terror organization and the Syrian branch of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militant group.
