Iran Asks Immediate Halt to Turkey's Attacks in Afrin

The Iranian foreign ministry
The Iranian foreign ministry called on Ankara to immediately end military operations against the Syrian border city of Afrin which is controlled by Kurds, warning that the invasion could create the needed chaos for the terrorist groups to resume operations in the region.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran is following up the current developments in the town of Afrin in Syria closely and with concern and hopes that the operations will immediately end to prevent further deepening and spread of crisis at the Turkish-Syrian bordering areas," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Sunday.

"Continued crisis in Afrin can strengthen the Takfiri-terrorist groups in Northern Syria again and will ignite again the fire of war and destruction in the country," he added.

Qassemi underlined the necessity for respecting Syria's territorial integrity and national sovereignty, calling on all sides, specially the Turkish government, to remain committed to the objective of the political settlement of the crisis in Syria, specially through the Astana process.

He also warned of the illegal and provocative meddling by the trans-regional states, including Washington, and the Israeli regime in Syria, adding that while the US forces and their allied Takfiri-terrorist groups continue their illegitimate presence in Syria, the crisis will not end in the country.

  1. One of the Kurdish movements in Afrin disclosed that the Kurds have turned down a Russian request to hand over areas under their control to the Syrian government.

    Aldar Khalil, a senior member of the Kurdish movement of 'Democratic Society', said that the Kurdish fighters in Afrin have turned down Russia's proposal to deliver the regions under their control to Damascus, adding that they still insist on keeping the regions.

    This is while the Turkish army has intensified air and ground attacks against the Kurds in Afrin in Aleppo province.

    "Russia raised this demand but we will not deliver control of our territories to them and will defend all regions under our control," Khalil said.
