BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The body of a British YPG fighter killed by the Turkish Air Force is still lying in the rubble inside the Aleppo Governorate’s Afrin region, the UK-based Mirror publication reported on Saturday.

According to the Mirror’s report, the body of Anna Campbell, 26, still remains in the Afrin region as the Turkish military has not allowed any aid groups access to this area for security reasons.

The British publication stated that the Turkish military had in fact secured the area around Campbell’s body, but was still refusing to allow aid groups access to the site.

In response to the British regime’s inactivity regarding this case, the YPG fighter’s father, Dirk Campbell, has accused the Foreign Office of ‘inertia,’ adding that the UK does not want to damage their relationship with Turkey.

“The FCO won’t have done anything specific. They’ve told me they can’t get involved in anything political,” Campbell told The Times.

“Basically, they don’t want to tread on the toes of anybody or affect Britain’s relationship with Turkey,” he continued.

“A young British fighter’s body is still lying in the battlefield where she was killed because officials do not want to ‘endanger Britain’s relationship with Turkey,'” he added.

Anna Campbell was killed by a suspected Turkish airstrike while fighting against ISIS in Syria on March 15 – but her body has still not been recovered from the rubble.

good article but Anna Campbell was not fighting Isis in Afrin. Afrin was a peaceful Kurdish corner that had seen no war in this conflict until this winter when Turkey bombarded and invaded Afrin. Isis had never been in Afrin, Anna Campbell and other volunteers went to repell Turkey’s anti-kurdish operation. long live Afrin, long live Anna Campbell
