The Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) are not happy that Syrian government troops are entering the area of Afrin where Ankara’s Operation Olive Branch against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) is ongoing.
Users watching Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen TV noted that the TAF had struck the area near the road where the government convoy was heading. According to reports, the incident took place near the village of Maryamin, east of the YPG-held city of Afrin.
No info about casualties among government troops is available.
According to the videos circulating online, the government convoy consists of at least 20 different vehicles, including pickups and armoured vehicles.
