BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – The Turkish General Staff claimed on Saturday that nearly 2,000 YPG and Islamic State (ISIS) fighters have been ‘neutralized’ in the Afrin region of Aleppo since the start of Operation Olive Branch on January 20th.

According to the Turkish General Staff’s statement, the total number of YPG and ISIS fighters neutralized in the Afrin region is currently 1,931.

In addition to 1,931 enemy fighters neutralized, the Turkish General Staff claimed that at least 782 “terrorist targets” had been destroyed since the start of Operation Olive Branch.

The Turkish-backed forces are now advancing along the Jandaris axis, where they have managed to besiege the YPG forces.
