TURKISH AIR RAIDS ON KURDISH-SYRIAN ENCLAVE OF AFRIN

Beirut / An elder and a woman died by Turkish air raids on the Kurdish-Syrian enclave of Afrin, where, after five days, air strikes by Turkish forces have restarted, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Civilians have been killed by bombings against the city of Afrin and its surroundings, in the north of Aleppo province.

Meanwhile, fighting continues in different parts of the region between the Turkish army and Syrian rebel factions allied with Ankara, on the one hand, and the Kurdish militia Units for the Protection of the People, on the other.

There are clashes in the towns of Bafaliun, Al Omara, Arab and Yaran, as well as in the areas of Rayu, Yindiris and Bilbile.

On January 20, Turkish Armed Forces and Syrian insurgent groups launched an offensive in Afrin, which is dominated by Kurdish militias, which Turkey considers terrorists because of their links to the Kurdish guerrillas present in its territory, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

Since the beginning of the attack, at least 70 civilians, 13 Turkish soldiers, 60 Syrian faction fighters and 37 Kurdish militiamen have lost their lives, according to the latest data from the Observatory.
