Turkish march to Syria's Afrin

“Turkey has launched a military operation in Syria’s Afrin, currently occupied by the Kurdish People's Protection Units. Due to the numerous diplomatic contacts Turkey was able to achieve neutral position of the key players in Syria. The USA didn’t begin to protest, even though the Kurds were the main allies of the Americans during the Syrian campaign, and because of them the USA tries to extend its military presence in Syria indefinitely,” RISS expert Vladimir Fitin considers.
