Speaking to supporters Saturday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan asked, "Hey NATO, where are you?" and accused the alliance of double standards.

On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch to clear YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin.

"Hey NATO, with what has been going on in Syria, when are you going to come and be alongside us?"

In mid-February, Turkey marked 66 years of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation membership.

The 50,000-strong YPG has allied with the U.S. in eradicating the Islamic State group from northern Syria and have been armed by the USA since May 2017.

"In fact, they would openly oppose Turkey in Syria if they could".

She's got the big serve. "The competitions she will play until then will help her and every day she progresses on her fitness". The 36-year-old suffered a pulmonary embolism after her daughter was delivered by caesarean section.

Overt talk of trying to rein them in is likely to add to the sense among many YPG leaders that the USA is a fair-weather fried that can't be counted on when the chips are down.

Erdogan said that Turkey shares a 911-kilometer (566-mile) border with Syria, adding that it has been harassed by both terrorist groups and the Syrian regime. When Ankara reaches it, the troops will be pulled out of the country, he stated.

"We are advancing toward Afrin [city center]".

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.

"Turkey is more than welcome to go back and read the exact text of this UN Security Council resolution, and I would suggest that they do so", US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on February 27, stating that the Afrin region was "certainly within Syria". The document, however, only stated that the ceasefire did not apply to such groups as Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS), Al-Qaeda and Al-Nusra front, and did not describe any Kurdish militias as terrorists.

Pro-Kurdish demonstrators staged protests against Turkey's military offensive in northern Syria on Sunday scuffling with Turks and German police at Duesseldorf airport, while in Britain they temporarily closed two train stations, authorities said.
