Olive Branch Street - Turkey Renames Road Where US Embassy Located In Ankara

Turkey has renamed the street where the US Embassy is located in Ankara with the name of Turkey’s military operation against US-linked Kurdish militias in the Syrian area of Afrin. Ankara municipal workers already put up a new sign – Olive Branch (Zeytindalı) there.

The Turkish military efforts against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and its female version, the Women’s Protection Units (YPJ), are a point of tensions between Ankara and Washington. The YPG and the YPJ are a core of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Turkey described the YPG and the YPJ as a terrorist group, the Syrian branch of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). The PKK is designated terrorist group in the US and a number of the European countries.

This is a good sign that Turkey can’t do more regarding Kurds problem.
