ANKARA, Turkey – Turkey has announced that it has repelled a huge pro-Syrian government that was heading to the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) held city of Afrin in northwest Syria.
The convoy consisted of 40 to 50 vehicles and were arriving to support the YPG in their struggle against the Turkish invasion of Afrin region.
The convoy, according to Turkey, was forced to turn back because of Turkish artillery fire, despite them operating in their own native land, demonstrating this is a Turkish invasion.
Turkish Presidential Advisor Kalin stated that “Assad signing an agreement with YPG on Afrin would not stop us.”
Turkey considers the YPG to be a terrorist group and are attempting to purge them from Afrin region that borders the invading country.
