Syrian Army Deployment to Afrin Nothing but Gossips: Turkish Presidential Spokesperson
BasNews 20/02/2018 – 12:23 ERBIL – Turkish Presidential Spokesperson stated that the allegations about the Syrian army’s deployment to Afrin, the Kurdish city in northern Syria, are nothing more than gossips.
Ibrahim Kalın, special adviser and the presidential spokesperson of Turkish President, on Tuesday wrote on Tweeter that the allegations about an agreement between the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Syrian Regime to return the Syrian army to Afrin are just gossips as long as this has not been confirmed by the Syrian officials.
He further said that the Turkish operation on the region would carry on.
On January 20th, the Turkish army has begun an air and ground operation on Afrin under the name of “Olive Branch”.
Several Syrian media outlets on Monday said that the Syrian army would return to Afrin to help the YPG forces in accordance with an agreement between the sides. However, the Turkish officials reacted to the claims and said that they would not stop the operation on the region in any case.
