On Thursday, Turkish forces and their Free Syrian Army (FSA) allies seized control of the nearby town of Jinderes, state media reported. Turkey now controls five out of seven of the settlements in the northwest Afrin region, state media said.

“Now the center of Afrin is surrounded and our entry is imminent,” Erdogan said in televised speech in Ankara.


This is where push comes to shove. PKK-YPG militants are expected to put a very stiff resistance to defend Afrin City. Once Turkish Forces capture Afrin City, they will either reinforce Idlib Front (trouble with Iran and Assad) or march on to Manbij (trouble with USA).
