War in Syria 2018 – Battle of Afrin(code-named Operation Olive Branch).
In January 2018, the Turkish military launched a military operation in the Kurdish-controlled Afrin District and the Tell Rifaat Subdistrict in Northern Syria. The offensive is against the Kurdish-led Democratic Union Party in Syria (PYD), its armed wing People’s Protection Units (YPG), and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) positions surrounding the Syrian city of Afrin. Afrin and the surrounding area is claimed by the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria as Afrin Canton, part of its Afrin Region. It is the first major military operation by Turkey in Syria since Operation Euphrates Shield.
The Free Syrian Army and Turkish forces have made advances against the People’s Protection Units in Afrin. According to the Turkish command, Operation Olive Branch has managed to take control of several villages and strategic locations in the Afrin countryside.
Syrian National Coalition supported the joint operation of the FSA and the Turkish Armed Forces.
Turkey launched an air and ground offensive on the Northern region, opening a new front in the multi-sided Syrian war to target Kurdish fighters in northern Syria.Share:
