Kurds to Act as Human Shields Against Turkish Assault on Afrin

Footage emerges of clashes between TAF FSA and PYD  YPG in Syria’s Jindaris

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday said his forces would be inside Afrin in a matter of days, but for humanitarian reasons they were taking their time to strategize and prevent civilian deaths.

Pro-Turkish sources assured, for their part, that until this date the army of the Euroasian country seized from the militia 193 places, of them five cities, 155 villages and 33 mountainous elevations. "We're in these villages temporarily, we're not here to occupy but to liberate", he said.

Over the last 48 hours, Afrin city has reportedly been targeted by Turkish air strikes, the water has been cut off, and the internet severed.

"Hey NATO, with what has been going on in Syria, when are you going to come and be alongside us?" The latter has been fighting for an autonomous region inside Turkey since 1984.

But supporters of the Turkish military operation call this a crime war and blame the YPG of forcing population to act as human shields.
