Turkey resumes Afrin operation in northern Syria

One of two British Islamic State (IS) militants known for their role in the torture and killings of Western hostages in Syria was aiming to reach Turkey when he was captured by Kurdish-led forces last month, a Kurdish official said on Friday.

The airstrikes destroyed 19 targets including ammunition depots, shelters and gun positions, the armed forces said in a statement without specifying when the raids were conducted.

At least three suspects were arrested in Turkey over charges of spreading terror propaganda on the social media, police sources said Thursday, APA reports quoting Anadolu agency.

Turkish Chief of General Staff Gen. Hulusi Akar and other top commanders inspected the ongoing "Operation Olive Branch" from an airborne warning and control plane, the Turkish General Staff said in a statement on February 9.

Among them were Serpil Kemalbay, the co-leader of the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), it said.

Separately, a soldier was killed in the southeastern province of Hakkari at the border with Iraq, in a rocket attack by Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militants, the Turkish military said in a statement.

The Turkish raid against Washington-backed forces comes two days after the United States attacked pro-Damascus forces in the western Syrian province of Dayr al-Zawr, reportedly killing more than 100 of them as the fighters were engaged in an anti-Daesh operation.

The SDF, which is spearheaded by the Kurdish YPG militia, has consistently accused Turkey of supporting IS militants in northern Syria, where the USA -led coalition has helped the SDF to drive the jihadists from swathes of territory.

Ankara launched an air and ground offensive in Afrin on January 20 against the YPG, which it views as a terrorist group and an extension of the Kurdistan Workers Party, PKK, that has waged a three-decade insurgency on Turkish soil.
