Syrian Government militias to enter Afrin..Turkey warns they are ready to fight

Pro-Syrian Government forces are set to enter the Kurdish-held area of Afrin to boost defences against a military offensive against Kurdish fighters by the Turkish army, Syrian state television has said.

SANA reported pro-Syrian government forces will begin entering the Afrin enclave in the country’s north “within hours”, after reaching an agreement with the Kurdish militia in control of the region.

“The popular forces joining the resistance against Turkish occupation in Afrin comes in the framework of supporting residents as well as defending Syria and its sovereignty,” SANA said.

Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu responded by saying that his country is ready to battle Syrian Government troops.

“If the regime is entering to protect the [Kurdish militia group] YPG, then no-one can stop us, stop Turkey or the Turkish soldiers,” Mr Cavusoglu said.

On the other hand, he said that Ankara would have no problem if Syrian Government forces enter Afrin to clear the area of YPG fighters.

Turkey began its operation last month with allied Syrian rebel groups to drive out the YPG, which Ankara regards as a terrorist group linked to an insurgency at home and sees as a security threat to its border.

The reports on Syrian state media specified that it would not be the Syrian army but militias allied to the Government that would mount the operation.
