Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said on March 8 that the government wants the country's ongoing operation in the northern Syrian district of Afrin to "be completed by May".

Turkey's military alongside Free Syrian Army allies have seized control of the second most populated town in the district from Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) fighters after capturing a hill overlooking the town a day earlier, it said.

In the face of Turkish aggression, repeatedly denounced by the Damascus government to the United Nations and other worldwide organizations, units of the pro-government Syrian People's Forces recently moved to Afrin, which forces support the YPG.

Meanwhile, aerial images taken by Anadolu Agency in Jinderes show that the town had been evacuated by the YPG/PKK terrorist group.

Italy is the epicenter of the problems facing establishment European politicians for both recent and more historical reasons. Renzi's attitude is a serious threat to the PD, as it could strike the final blow to a party already in a deep crisis .

Turkey launched the operation to remove YPG/PKK-Daesh terrorists from Afrin. The exact number of YPG militants in the town is unknown, they added. "We are only there to clean these areas of terrorists", he said, referring to the YPG militants.

He noted that the Turkish Armed Forces and forces of the Free Syrian Army will liberate Afrin from the terrorists.

The Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) uses the term "neutralized" in reference to terrorists captured dead or alive, or those who surrendered during the operations.

The operation is being carried out under the framework of Turkey's rights based on global law, UN Security Council resolutions, its self-defense rights under the UN charter, and respect for Syria's territorial integrity.
