Kurds call on Damascus to defend against Turks

Kurds call on Damascus to defend against Turks
Kurdish authorities in Syria's northern Afrin enclave have called on Syrian troops to defend the region's border, as a Turkish offensive continues there.

They said the "aim of this (Turkish) aggression is to cut more Syrian land by occupying Afrin".

In a statement on Thursday, Afrin's Kurdish authorities said the Turkish operation "threatens Syria and the security and life of the civilian population residing in the area".

"We call upon the Syrian state to carry out its sovereign duties towards Afrin and protect its borders with Turkey from attacks by the Turkish occupier," it added.

There has been no public response yet from the government in Damascus.
