Turkey renovates schools, improves education in Afrin

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan

"Operation Olive Branch" is Turkey's second major military intervention in Syria since 2011.

The military offered condolences to the families of the martyred soldiers and wished injured soldiers a speedy recovery.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his forces and allied Free Syrian Army militias would press on with attacks against Manbij and several other northeastern Syrian towns held by the USA -backed Syrian Democratic Forces "until we completely abolish this [terrorist] corridor".

Although Turkey recently captured Afrin, Erdogan claims Operation Olive Branch will continue.

Formidable guerrilla fighters, the YPG withdrew from Afrin on Sunday after a Turkish thrust into the town centre.

The split with Turkey on USA support for the SDF had been building for months and intensified when Turkey pushed across the border into Syria on January 20 in Operation Olive Branch.

In eastern Syria, the YPG forms the backbone of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the militia which ousted the Islamic State (IS) militant group from its main stronghold of Raqa.

Ankara has been angered by Washington's arming of the YPG, which it says is an extension of the Kurdish PKK waging a deadly insurgency inside Turkey since the 1980s, saying the weapons would eventually be turned on Turkey. "If you can not handle it, then we may suddenly enter Sinjar one night and clear out the PKKs there".

Prince Mohammed has consolidated power and is likely to rule for many decades if he succeeds his father. Trump was non-committal on the future of the Iranian nuclear deal.

He also accused the US of sending weapons and ammunition to help Kurdish fighters.

It further said, "Turkey's behaviour and attacks do not only threaten citizens and the unity of Syria's land and people - they also prolong the war on Syria as a service to terrorism and its supporters".

United States support for the Kurdish-dominated SDF has infuriated Turkey and created an ongoing diplomatic crisis between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

Abdallah said Campbell joined the YPJ in May 2017 but had not been deployed to the front line until this month. Images have emerged of torched stores, and of men in uniforms and others in civilian clothes walking out of homes with household goods.

The U.S. State Department said it was "deeply concerned" over the humanitarian situation following Turkey's capture of Afrin.

The film and script were approved by the Turkish Armed Forces and Defence Ministry, Baytimur said, and two local weapons companies contributed real pistols and rifles.

"If they have not yet stolen my things, they will in an hour", he said.
