Syria: Turkey carries out airstrikes in Syria's Afrin

The Turkish Air Force released aerial footage, Sunday, of what they report is a missile strikes in Syria's Afrin region, which Turkish authorities claim destroyed an ammunition depot of the People's Protection Units (YPG).

On Saturday, Turkish war planes started to bomb Kurdish positions in Afrin shortly after the country’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the launch of the military operation dubbed 'Olive Branch'.

The President also declared that the next destination for the Turkish forces would be Syria's Manbij.

Turkey views the YPG, which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned militant group Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
