Turkish Air Force bombs airport near Syria's Afrin

'Turkey clings to its goal of eliminating terrorism' People in Kurdistan Region demonstrate for Afrin, promise more activities

Last week the Pentagon said it is carefully tracking Turkish military moves toward the Syrian town of Manbij, 60 miles east of Afrin and where the USA has forces on the ground.

Reuters reports that the attack took place when "the convoy was in transit in northern Idlib".

This has been a problem long coming, as Turkey has been complaining about U.S. support for the Kurdish YPG for years, and has telegraphed that they'd eventually invade Syria to get them. "The main aim is the creation of a "'de-escalation' zone there, under a deal brokered by Russian Federation in August", Reuters reads.

The situation in Syria's northern district of Afrin, where the Turkish armed forces are now carrying out the Olive Branch operation, is causing major concerns, Moscow urges all sides to exercise restraint, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Wednesday. Anadolu got information on the uncovered tunnels from locals "who spoke on condition of anonymity due to security concerns".

Manning said he did not know if the US has agreed to stop arming and training its Syrian allies, another request by Turkey.

Rockets fired from northern Syria into a Turkish border town on Wednesday killed a teenage girl and wounded another person, Turkey's state-run news agency reported. One of them, 17-year-old Fatma Avlar, died from her wounds, the agency said. The attacks inside Turkey have so far killed four people, including Avlar. Two of the victims were Syrian refugees.

The Turkish offensive against the Kurdish-Syrian enclave began on January 20.

Talks with Turkey to prevent a military clash in northern Syria between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies are "close and continuing", Pentagon officials said Monday.

"Your determined attitude in strictly rejecting any association of terrorism with religion is being reflected on to world opinion", the Istanbul-based Bartholomew I told President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in an open letter.
