AFRIN, Syria – Graphic images have emerged from the northwest Syrian city of Afrin after the Turkish air force just conducted an air raid that has killed at least 20 civilians and injured many more.
This comes as the Olive Branch forces, a coalition of the Turkish military and their Syrian puppets, prepare to storm the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) held city.
Turkey recognizes the YPG as a terrorist organization as it is the Syrian branch of the Turkey-based Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) that is internationally recognized as a terrorist group, including by Washington.
Despite Washington recognizing the PKK as a terrorist organization, it supports the YPG in Syria by arming and funding them. This has been a consistent cause of hostility between Ankara and Washington.
