BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:05 P.M.) – One month into Operation Olive Branch, the Turkish Army and their rebel allies have managed to seal off the entire Afrin-Turkey border.
The Turkish Army and their rebel allies were able to cutoff the Afrin-Turkey border over the course of two weeks, as their forces made an important advance in the southwestern countryside of this region.
While the Syrian government forces have now entered the battle, it appears Turkey has already achieved their primary objective, which is to build a buffer-zone around this region in Aleppo.
More importantly, the Turkish military has once again prevented the Syrian government from attaining another border-crossing in northern Syria.
