Turkey wants joint U.S. deployment in Syria's Manbij

Turkey wants joint U.S. deployment in Syria's Manbij

On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch to clear PYD/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Ankara has no intention of engaging the Syrian government forces in battle and respects Syria's territorial integrity.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said Turkish forces and their Syrian insurgent allies hit the village on Friday with shells.

"We continue to have serious concerns about the detention of local employees of our mission in Turkey and about cases against USA citizens who have been arrested under the state of emergency", he said.

YPG spokesman Biruk Hasaka said on Friday that Turkey had bombarded a village in Afrin that caused six people to suffer breathing problems and other symptoms indicative of a gas attack.

Defense Secretary James Mattis says the there should be no question about the USA military alliance with Turkey or Ankara's commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, despite despite deep disagreements over the way forward in Syria's war. The talks with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were to focus on Washington's plan to continue providing the Kurdish militants assistance and on Turkey's military operations in Kurdish areas of northern Syria. "I can't tell you that we've resolved them all".

US cannot hide terror groups by changing their names'

Turkish forces entered the northwestern Syrian region, centered around the city of Afrin, and have been "liberating" village after village with deadly force.

A U.S. statement cited "a productive and open conversation about a mutually beneficial way forward in the U.S. -Turkey relationship".

With the increase of deaths among Turkish soldiers, security bodies are intensifying their campaigns against Turkish opposition movements who reject the military operation undertaken, according to the media loyal to the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), "for Turkey to remain an undivided land: one language, one flag and one nation". A source familiar with the situation also told Sputnik that the deployment "of the Syrian Armed Forces at the Syrian-Turkish border in Afrin" is expected to occur in the next few days.

Tillerson said on February 15, before his Ankara visit, that the United States had "never given heavy arms" to the YPG and there was therefore "nothing to take back".

Although Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government and the YPG have mostly avoided direct conflict, they have occasionally clashed and they espouse utterly different visions for Syria's future.

Turkey claims the YPG is linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has been fighting a rebellion against the Turkish state since 1984. The Turkish government has denied the claims.
