Pro-Syrian regime militias enter Afrin

A Spaniard struggling with Kurdish militias in Syria dies in combat

Turkish President Recep Erdogan sounds more and more like his counterparts every day.

Erdogan has, however, threatened to expand the offensive to the YPG-held town of Manbij.

The "Olive Branch" Turkish military operation began January 20 with the aim of dismantling the YPG, which controls roughly 30 percent of Syrian territory, mostly bordering Turkey.

Details of the deal were not announced by either side, and Kurdish officials said talks were still underway. What has not been mentioned is whether or not Russian Federation will provide air support.

Ankara's month-old offensive is aimed at driving the Kurdish YPG militia, which it sees as a big security threat on its border, from Afrin. Damascus says it is sending mercenaries, not regular troops.

On the back of reports that Syrian pro-government forces are to enter Afrin, Ankara said "no one can stop" its soldiers if "the regime" comes to help Kurdish militias, but added that Syrians fighting them will be "no problem". Ankara considers them to be terrorist groups linked to an insurgency inside its own borders.

His remarks came as Turkeys ground and air offensive against the Peoples Protection Units (YPG) militia, viewed as "terrorists" by Ankara, entered its second month.

This is while United States officials regard the YPG as the most effective fighting force against the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in northern Syria, and have substantially increased their weaponry and technology support to the terrorist group.

Kurd fighters have proven to be the most capable and dependable infantrymen in the conflict.

Ankara's onslaught has further scrambled the matrix of rivalries and alliances in northern Syria among Kurdish forces, the Syrian government, insurgent factions, Turkey, Iran, the United States and Russian Federation.

It was not immediately clear where or what type of forces the Syrian regime is deploying. The slap is a supposed martial arts maneuver to kill an opponent. During the visit, Mr. Tillerson re-emphasized the necessity of U.S.

"The humanitarian situation of civilians in East Ghouta is spiraling out of control", said Panos Moumtzis, the United Nations regional humanitarian coordinator for the Syria crisis, in a statement late Monday. "It was stopped", Erdogan told reporters following his parliament speech. But the Kurds seek autonomy in regions they hold, while Assad has pledged to assert control over all of Syria and has called the YPG traitors. As nice an offer as that is, the USA failed to accept it.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it was the deadliest days in eastern Ghouta since 2015, adding that 20 children and 15 women were among those killed.

This suburb of Damascus is controlled by al-Qaeda-associated al-Nusra Front until August 2016 when it split for propaganda purposes. Damascus was busy fighting Syrian rebels in Idlib and dealing with areas it has liberated from ISIS.
