Syrian government slams Turkish offensive in Afrin as 'occupation'

Mr Egeland spoke in Geneva after a regular meeting of world and regional powers in a UN humanitarian "task force" for Syria.

The identify of the deity worshipped there has not been officially determined, but one theory is that it is Ishtar, the goddess of love.

"If France is interpreting this issue as an [invasion operation], we need to assess what they have done in Syria accordingly", he told a news conference in Ankara, speaking alongside visiting his visiting Lebanese counterpart Saad Hariri. It concluded: "No to war".

The Turkish military offensive against Syrian Kurds in Afrin has been met with criticism across the political spectrum in Germany; the sympathies of the media also clearly lie with the Kurds.

The MP for Glasgow South West has also put forward an Early Day Motion in parliament calling for solidarity with the people of Afrin and condemnation of Turkish violence, sponsored by SNP MP Tommy Sheppard and Labour MPs Grahame Morris and Chris Williamson.

"A four month old and a nine month old - as if we're the Daesh of Afrin", he said, using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group.

All of this has helped to alienate Turkey from the European Union. Two of the victims were Syrian refugees. "And the Russians must convince the Syrian regime to join". A total of 52 rockets have been fired from Syria's northwestern Afrin region. Terrorism is terrorism and ought to be fought in a determined and consistent manner. Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., who had urged Trump to both extend the protections and let new arrivals apply, called the move a "missed opportunity". At the same time, there are reports that members of local Christian communities have been kidnapped and forced to fight by the YPG forces. One civilian personnel was killed in the attack.

Afrin is very diverse and home to various ethnic and religious groups. Paying lip service to understanding Turkey's security concerns does not remove those threats and dangers. But access to Afrin, the Kurdish border pocket currently buckling under Turkish bombardment?

'The UK is committed to working closely with Turkey and other allies to find solutions that provide stability, refrain from escalating the situation and protect Turkey's security interests'.

The operation has a clear objective: to ensure the security of our borders and neutralise the terrorists in Afrin.

Russia did interfere in our domestic politics, with the main goal to divide America by exploiting race relations, which were thrown in the dumpster by President Obama and other divisions. The targets are the terrorists, their shelters, their weapons and related infrastructure. The YPG militias are well-armed, experienced in battle and deeply rooted within the Kurdish population.

The UN office has identified at least 15,000 internally-displaced persons (IDPs) in Afrin, the outlet Kurdistan24 reported.

Turkey will continue the mission until terrorists are wiped out.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the operation has so far claimed the lives of 61 civilians in Afrin, three in Turkish towns along the border and five Turkish soldiers. "They shouldn't be two-faced", he said. Here is her account of the attacking convoy: "Huge story developing right now". Clearing terrorists means opening space for peace.

The U.S. -led coalition partnered with the YPG against the Islamic State group, and today the militia and allied forces control some 25 percent of Syria's territory.
