Turkey orders arrest of 17 pro-Kurdish leaders over criticising Syria offensive

Death toll tops 220 in four-day regime assault on Syria rebel enclave

The SDF and the coalition targeted the attacking forces with air strikes and shelling after "20 to 30 artillery and tank rounds landed within 500 metres (yards) of the SDF headquarters location", a United States official said.

But the USA denies those connections and sees the YPG as a key ally in the battle against the Islamic State.

The overnight attack, which killed about 100 according to a USA military, came when hundreds of attackers launched an assault on US -backed forces known as the Syrian Democratic Forces who were accompanied by USA advisers in the oil-rich Deir el-Zour province.

Syrian civlians flee from reported regime air strikes in the rebel-held town of Jisreen, in the besieged Eastern Ghouta region on the outskirts of the capital Damascus, on February 8, 2018.

Earlier in January, the US-led coalition announced that it would help create the 30,000-strong BSF, half of which would be made up of the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) alliance.

As of Sunday, at least 14 Turkish troops have also been reported killed in the fighting. It said the dead includes a medic and at least three children and eight women.

Negotiations on the proposed measure are to begin on Monday, and diplomats said it could quickly come to a vote at the council. It is commanding a joint operation with Syrian opposition forces on the ground, as well, though they have been held to limited territorial gains by the YPG.

Turkey says it is making steady progress as its military operation against the Kurdish region of Afrin in northwestern Syria enters its fourth week.




But the agency later tweeted that the helicopter was downed in Syria itself, citing the Turkish prime minister, Binali Yildirim. A stronghold of Islamic State militants until late previous year, the province also was the group's main source of oil revenue.

SANA labeled it an "aggression" and a "new massacre".

It said local authorities in Afrin reportedly continue to block civilians leaving the district.

The Iranian president further underlined the need for boosting trilateral ties among Iran, Turkey and Russian Federation and welcomed an upcoming meeting in Istanbul between the three countries' presidents on the Syria crisis.

According to Turkish media, Ankara's aerial campaign was briefly halted after Russia closed the airspace over Afrin, as a result of the downing of a Russian jet in neighbouring Idlib province.

The Turkish president also invited Rouhani to the Istanbul meeting on the Syria conflict.

Eastern Ghouta and Idlib, a northern province where violence also flared this week, are both so-called de-escalation zones agreed a year ago in a bid to pave the way for an end to the conflict.

They discussed the humanitarian situation in Eastern Ghouta, just outside Damascus, where dozens have been killed in aerial strikes in the past few days.
