Turkish army, FSA 'capture Jinderes town' in Syria's Afrin

Airstrikes intensified on Jandairis after Turkish forces captured the hill overlooking the town a day earlier, it added.

Turkey launched its operation, dubbed "Olive Branch", in northern Syria almost seven weeks ago to sweep the Syrian Kurdish YPG from the Turkish border.

Afrin's center is surrounded.

Turkish army forces and allied militants from the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) have seized control of a town in Syria's northwestern Afrin region that has been the target of a military campaign over the past weeks.

Mr Erdogan also reaffirmed his previous vows that Turkey would not limit itself to clearing the Afrin region of the YPG, saying it wanted to carry on to the town of Manbij to the east and then to the Iraqi border.

Turkey expects that the United States of America stops deploying Kurdish militants from Manbij to Afrin, Turkish president's spokesman Ibrahim Kalin has announced on March 7, Al Jazeera reports.

On a visit to Ankara last month, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that Turkey and the US had to solve the tensions surrounding Manbij as a "priority".

The YPG is regarded by Turkey as the Syrian affiliate of the PKK, listed as a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the USA and European Union.

Turkish armed forces are besieging the Syrian Kurdish-controlled district of Afrin in northern Syria, Turkey's president has said.

The PKK, which has carried out a three-decade insurgency in Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast, is considered a terrorist organization by the United States, Turkey and the European Union.
