Kurds are Ready to Fight Turkish Forces

Turkey began its first wave of artillery fire targeting Kurdish fighters in Afrin, Syria on Tuesday night.

In this regard, in an interview published Tuesday with Kurdish news agency ANF, YPG chief Sipan Hemo said his forces stood “ready” to defend those towns against a Turkish assault.

We remind that earlier the U.S.-led coalition announces about setting up a 30,000-strong border security force in northern Syria that would deploy along the Turkish frontier.

Ankara immediately objected to such a move out of fear the new force would be comprised of the YPG, which it accuses of being a branch of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) that has waged an insurgency in Turkey since 1984.
