Turkey says it will oust mil­i­tants

The Citizens' Voice - - Nation & World -

Turkey’s pres­i­dent vowed to oust Kur­dish mil­i­tants from Afrin, north­ern Syria, on Satur­day as Syr­ian rebels also said they are brac­ing for such an op­er­a­tion.

Speak­ing in the eastern province of Elazig, Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan warned the Peo­ple’s Pro­tec­tion Units, or YPG, that Turkey will in­ter­vene if the “ter­ror­ists in Afrin do not sur­ren­der.”

His re­marks came as Turkey’s mil­i­tary shelled Afrin, a Kur­dish-con­trolled en­clave along Syria’s fron­tier with Turkey.
