DAMASCUS, Syria – The Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu claimed that the Syrian Government was informed of the Afrin operation in advance through a written form.

The Afrin operation will see the Turkish military and its Syrian proxies take on the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the smal Afrin enclave in northern Syria.

However, Syria has denied the allegations made by Turkey that it was notified of its operations and has condemned Turkish aggression and called on the international community to put an end to the Turkish invasion.

It appears unlikely that Turkey will put a halt to its operation until the YPG are defeated in Afrin.
