“Pro-Syrian Regime Terror Groups Forced To Go Back From Afrin” Says Erdogan

Agencies (Qasioun) - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said the issue of pro-regime terror groups in Syria's Afrin was "closed for now".

 

Pro-regime groups earlier on Tuesday, who tried to enter Syria’s Afrin to support YPG/PKK-Daesh against Turkey’s ongoing operation in the region, withdrew before reaching the city following a series of warning shots.

 

Speaking at a joint news conference alongside his Macedonian counterpart Gjorge Ivanov in Ankara, Erdogan said there was a movement towards Afrin by Shia militias which were interrupted after they were shelled.

 

"But then they were forced to go back after artillery shooting, this file is closed for now," he said.
