Turkey’s "Operation" in Syria’s Afrin Does Not Serve Its Interests : US State Dept

US State Dept
The reported military operation [invasion] by Turkey in Syria’s northern province of Afrin does not serve the interests of Ankara or the region, a senior US Department of State official told reporters on Friday.

"I have just seen summaries of the same reports. Frankly, I do not have any details of what is going on," the official said. "We do not believe that a military operation whether in Afrin or directed against the self-defense rather Syrian Democratic Forces, the SDF, in the north and northeast Syria serves the cause of regional stability, Syrian stability, or indeed Turkish concerns about the security of their border."

The statement was made amid the reports of the shelling of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in the Syrian city of Afrin by Turkish Armed Forces, which reportedly covered seven settlement, allegedly causing civilian casualties, with a 6-year old child among wounded.
