  • Turkish forces have surrounded Afrin city in Syria operation, says state media

Erdogan urged North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to come to the aid of Turkey, saying its borders are "under threat right now". We're fighting so much. Erdogan also denounced North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on Sunday, accusing the Western military alliance of failing to back Turkey's campaign.

RT quoted US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as saying in February: "Turkey is more than welcome to go back and read the exact text of this UN Security Council resolution, and I would suggest that they do so".

Turkey launched a solo military offensive against the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units or YPG on January 20 to clear them from Afrin in northwestern Syria.

Under operation "Olive Branch" 3,213 terrorists have been neutralised till now.

However, it remains to be seen if the US allows Turkey to continue with its offensive or intervenes to protect the force that is vital to maintaining control of huge swathes of ungoverned Syria.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey as well as the USA and the EU.

Here, "Neutralised" implies the terrorists either surrendered or were killed or captured.

The military intervention came after the USA said it would set up a 30,000-strong militant border force at Turkish doorstep. "Turkey will fight terrorists anywhere they operate", he added.

More than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK - listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the USA, and European Union - resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July 2015. Ankara is wary of the presence of Kurdish militants close to its borders in Syria, and has been opposed to Washington's efforts to train and arm them in the Arab country.
