Turkey: Journalist on duty injured in Syria's Afrin

German journalist backs Turkey's fight against PYD  PKK

"Your concern is that the Turkish attack is targeting your Marxist comrades from the PKK", he said.

According to the Turkish side, the importance of Mount Darmak lies in its strategic position used to bomb the border city of Kalis with missiles fired by the Kurdish protection forces.

Immediately after the attack at Sheikh Haruz, an air operation targeting terrorist shelters, hideouts and weapon emplacements in the area was launched at 5.52 p.m. local time (1452GMT).

During the conversation, Erdogan said Turkey does not have any design on any country's territory and added the operation was aimed at clearing PYD/PKK, YPG and Daesh terrorists from Afrin.

Ankara says that major progress has been made in the 15-day operation, with nearly 900 YPG fighters killed so far although it is not possible to verify these figures.

The Turkish military campaign against Afrin started in January, aiming to eliminate the Kurdish forces on the Syrian-Turkish border. The seventh one was killed in a YPG attack on the border, without giving further details. "There is not much to go", he said.

Governor Mehmet Tekinarslan says three more rockets hit the town of Kilis, northeast of Reyhanli, where at least three people were wounded. "We have given the necessary response instantly, and we continue to do so", Yildirim said.

About the rocket attacks carried out by the YPG/PKK militants based in Syria on Turkey, he blamed the US and European countries for providing weapons to the terror group.

But the YPG has been working closely with the United States to fight the Islamic State extremist group in Syria.
