On March 16, the Turkish Army and its proxies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) captured the villages of Khazban Fawqani, Khazban Tahtani, Jalqam, Shaykh Bilal, Jarkhatli, Qassem, Kuliye Fawqani, Kuliey Tahtani, Dar Kir, Ayn Hajar and the town Juwayq northwest of the city of Afrin, according to sources linked to the FSA. The Turkish Army also captured hills “800” and “1500”.

The Kurdish Hawar News Agency (ANHA) reported that the Turkish Air Force (TAF) had continued conducting airstrikes on the city of Afrin. During the last 24 hours, 8 civilians were killed and 30 others were injured in the TAF bombardment according to the ANHA.

Meanwhile, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) announced that its fighters had destroyed two vehicles belonging to the Turkish Army in the Shara district north of the city of Afrin. The Kurdish force also claimed that 31 Turkish Army soldiers and FSA fighters had been killed by its fighters on March 15.

As the YPG continues to retreat, more than 30,000 civilians have fled to the government-held areas in Aleppo governorate over the last few days, according to Syrian pro-government sources. This number will likely grow in the upcoming days due to an intense bombardment by the TAF.

The current main target of the Turkish Army and its proxies is likely the center of the Ma’betla district, northwest of Afrin city. Turkish forces are currently stationed only 15km west of the district’s center.

    This map is also outdated, Afrin is sieged from the north (3 directions) so that means its cut in 2 pockets.

  • Serious

    Civilians of Afrin are now fleeing towards the “dictator” Assad. XD.

    Syrians should not take them unless they want to let enter a trojan horse like they did before by welcoming kurds into Syria.

    Erdogan: the pro Trump terrorists SDF, YPG have already lost 3000+ fighters and will see further casualties if they don’t handover Syrian and Iraqi land to their nations. Erdogan have begun operation to remove pro Trump terrorists from Syria and Iraq. Erdogan should continue operation but in unity with Syria and Iraq to minimize casualties. They should safe their nations.

    Syrian and Iraqi lands will be liberated from US coalition and Kurdistan at the end of all pockets. It is the work of the God to make nations united, it is the work of the Satan to divide nations.

          • Lies! No one speaks out against US policies more than I. I love USA, not the corrupt Globalist Occupation Government. At least you are correct about Erdogan being Saruman. Mussolini could be another good analogy.

      • Right, Ottomans and Timur were great friends. Ottomans and Safavids were like brothers! Arabs loved Ottomans so much they joined with British to fight them! Hahaha. Tell me some more jokes, please!
