Turkey's Afrin Operation Draws in Armenians, Azeris

Reportedly, the parties will discuss the Operation Olive Branch in Syria's Afrin during the meeting.

Turkish warplanes have launched a new wave of bombing of Kurdish militia targets in Syria's Afrin region, the military said on Friday, and a monitoring group said the strikes killed seven fighters and two civilians.

Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said Moscow supported a cessation of hostilities, but believed the plan was not realistic because terrorists were keeping up their attacks there.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has promised to take Ankara's Syria operation to Idlib after completing the current mission in Afrin, where they are targeting Kurdish militants.

The Russian officials offered assurances that they would not engage the coalition forces in the area, Veale said.

Presidents of Turkey, Iran and Russia, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Hassan Rouhani and Vladimir Putin will hold a meeting in Istanbul, Turkish media reported February 8.

Since the operation began, Turkish forces and the FSA have captured a total of 46 zones, including 29 villages and 13 strategic mountains and hills from the YPG.

He cited Eastern Ghouta near Damascus, which has been the scene of clashes between Syrian government forces and militants for weeks.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the war, said Deir el-Zour province continues to be tense following the foiled attack and the US response, and said there were reports of a new mobilization to the area.

The US, which has backed the Kurds in the ongoing battle against IS in Syria, said it was concerned and has called on Turkey to limit its military offensive in the Kurdish region. The event is expected to take place in Istanbul.

For numerous participating groups, their function is reduced to serving as a "foreign legion" for Turkey, said Heras.

Describing Turkey as "the only North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally with an active insurgency inside its border with the PKK terrorist group", Mattis said the U.S.is working with Turkey on its legitimate security concerns not just with the PKK but also along the Syrian border, which has been turned into a battlefield by the Bashar al-Assad regime.
