UPDATE: Government troops are really entering the Afrin area (more photos and videos below). However, the YPG has not provided an official comment on the deployment so far.
Few moments ago, Syrian government forces started entering the area of Afrin controlled by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), according to reports by pro-government and Kurdish media activists and media outlets.
According to reports, units of the local National Defense Forces (NDF) are mostly involved in the effort.
