On Jan. 20, Turkey launched the operation to clear YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin, northwestern Syria.

According to him, deployment of YPG militants to north-western Syria is being held under control of the USA military in the region. Washington has backed the group in the fight against ISIS.

On Thursday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Turkey would complete the Afrin offensive by May and carry out a joint operation with Iraq's central government against Kurds in Iraq.
