Armenian Man Killed by Turkish Shelling in Afrin

Armenian Man Killed by Turkish Shelling in Afrin

The Kurdish proposal provides for "the return of Syrian border guards and the raising of the Syrian flag at the border to reassure the Turks", said Ahed Al-Hendi, a senior adviser to the Kurdish administration.

A Russian diplomat says the opening of a Russia-sponsored peace conference for Syria is being delayed. The main Syrian opposition body has boycotted the talks. The US has mostly just ignored those warnings.

Russian Federation has been steering a separate Syria negotiating track in Astana, Kazakhstan, as well.

Turkey, which is waging a military offensive against Kurdish YPG fighters in Syria's northwestern region of Afrin, has repeatedly said it will also drive the YPG militia from the mainly Arab town of Manbij, east of Afrin.

The Turkish assault on Afrin has exposed the ambivalence of the relationship between the Kurds and Assad, who does not see the minority as a direct threat but resents their emancipation.

Rasit Tukel, the chief of the Turkish Medical Association, and seven other members were detained in police operations in Ankara and other cities for breach of Turkey's anti-terror laws, Anadolu Agency reported.

Turkey considers the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units, or YPG, which it is fighting in Syria an extension of the outlawed Kurdish rebels inside Turkey. More than 300 people have been detained for social media posts criticising the campaign and a prosecutor has issued detention warrants for 11 top doctors.

"We've had 29 martyrs, five from the Turkish army and 24 from the FSA, since the start of the Afrin operation", the minister said.

The agency quoted Hartyon Kivork, a relative of the family, as saying: "Their ancestors fled the oppression of the Turkish authorities almost 100 years ago in the result of the massacres committed by the Turks against the Armenians so that they headed towards Afrin to live in peace among their Kurdish brothers and all other peoples and sects living in the area".
