Kurds clash with police in Germany, UK over Turkey's Afrin campaign

Turkey Opposition member questions US support for PKK

"The events in the region can stoke passions among Kurds living here in Germany", a ministry spokeswoman said, noting that conflicts between Turks and Kurds were also playing out in Germany, which is home to about 3 million people with ties to Turkey, including many ethnic Kurds.

Afrin is separated from a much larger area held by Syrian Kurdish forces further east along the border with Turkey, including large swathes of land captured from Islamic State with support from the United States.

Over the last 48 hours, Afrin city has reportedly been targeted by Turkish air strikes, the water has been cut off, and the internet severed.

Erdogan said on Sunday Turkish troops and allied Syrian rebels were now just four to five kilometres from Afrin.

Erdogan asked. "We came in response to the calls on Afghanistan, Somalia and the Balkans, and now I am making the call, let's go to Syria". Erdogan also denounced North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on Sunday, accusing the Western military alliance of failing to back Turkey's campaign. NATO, Turkey is not a NATO country? "As SYPG and JAS, we will launch a new group of human shields against the invasion of the CizirĂȘ region and the Firat (Euphrates) region".

When attempting to justify their offensive, authorities of Turkey sustain they combat the Units of Popular Protection in Syrian soil, as that organization, considered terrorist by Ankara, is an ally of the Workers' Party of Kurdistan, which has operated south of Turkey for several years. In January, U.S. had announced plans to help the Kurdish militia form a 30,000-strong "border security force" which was received in Ankara with alarm and anger.

"Once we have purged the terrorists (from Afrin) we will then cleanse them from Manbij, Ayn al-Arab, Tel-Abyad, Ras al-Ayn and Qamishli", he said in televised comments.

"In fact, they would openly oppose Turkey in Syria if they could".
