Turkey will deliver Afrin to its true owners, says Erdoğan

Turkey Opposition member questions US support for PKK

8 terrorists 'neutralized' this week in Turkey, N Iraq

Turkey launched a solo military offensive against the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units or YPG on January 20 to clear them from Afrin in northwestern Syria.

As part of the Turkey-led Operation Olive Branch, the FSA captured the base after a brief clash with the militants.

Several spontaneous protests have taken place across Germany, which is home to a large Turkish immigrant population, in response to advances by Turkish troops on Afrin, with just a couple of hundred meters separating them from the city, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the conflict through a network of activists on the ground.

AP reported that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday: "Hey NATO, where are you?". Erdogan also denounced North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on Sunday, accusing the Western military alliance of failing to back Turkey's campaign.

Turkey has been waging "Operation Olive Branch" against Syria's Afrin region since January 20 in a bid to eliminate the YPG, which forms the backbone of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) that enjoys U.S. support. Unfortunately, until now, there has not been a positive word or voice.

She added that Turkey helped Bosnia in its times of need and continues to support the country.

Under NATO charter, an attack on one of the alliance's members is an attack on them all.

Turkey's objective has put it in direct contrast to U.S.'s objective of building a force to stabilize the region. 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.

The YPG too denies any direct organisational links to Turkey's PKK- an assertion backed by a USA -led coalition whose air strikes have helped the militia and allied Arab fighters drive Islamic State militants out of tens of thousands of square kilometres of Syria.

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