France calls for humanitarian corridors in Syria

39;US ties with YPG are hurting relations with Turkey'

Since the beginning of Operation Olive Branch, 1,266 terrorists were killed in Syria's Afrin district, the Turkish General Staff said in a message February 11.

One Turkish soldier was killed in Operation Olive Branch carried out by the Turkish army in Syria's Afrin district today, according to a military statement.

The airstrike came amid the ongoing military showdown between the Turkish forces and the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in the countryside of Afrin.

Ankara considers the YPG - the main Western ally in the fight against the Islamic State extremist group in Syria - a terrorist organisation because of its ties to a Kurdish insurgency in Turkey.

Ankara has consistently denied any civilian casualties, with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claiming his army could execute the mission in Afrin "in several days [if it] used all of its warplanes, tanks, and helicopters, leveling everything coming in its way".

Moayad al-Hafi, a rescue worker, said his team was hit in a double-tap strike as they were pulling bodies out in Jisreen.

A spokesman for the Kurdish militia, Mustafa Bali, said his fighters downed the chopper in Raju, northwest Afrin.




Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency said F-16 jets resumed bombing Thursday night, striking the northwestern enclave's Mount Bafilun, the villages of Sheik Huruz and Kefer Jenne, and the regions of Sheran, Jinderes and Raju, among other targets. This would mark the first time the YPG have downed a Turkish aircraft in the Afrin offensive.

At least 47 high ranking officials have been detained since the Afrin operation started.

"We are in a war". Diplomacy is making no progress toward ending a war, now approaching its eighth year, which has killed hundreds of thousands of people and forced half the pre-war Syrian population of 23 million from their homes.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson faces "difficult" talks next week with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally Turkey on Syria and human rights, his delegation said Friday before a regional tour.

Macron asked Putin to "do everything" so that Syria's government stops "intolerable degradation of the humanitarian situation" in Eastern Ghouta and Idlib province. It added that the group's partners say 45 schools in eastern Ghouta have been attacked this year, with 11 destroyed.

The proposed measure came a day after the council failed to back an appeal by United Nations aid officials for a month-long pause in fighting.
