Recall that a few days earlier, the Kurds were able to shoot down a Turkish drone that was in the Turkish airspace above Hakkari province.
Against this background, the Turkish news agency Anadolu reports that the operation “Olive Branch” will not be limited to the territory of the canton of Afrin in the north of Syria. The IA refers to the statement by the chairman of the Turkish government, Binali Yıldırım, who also added that the operation “Olive Branch” supports “each of 81 millions of Turkish citizens”. The Kurds have already responded to this statement, stating that Yildirim is cunning. The fact is that about 17 million Kurds live in Turkey, most of whom, to put it mildly, are not happy about the fact that the Turkish army is fighting against Kurdish troops in the neighboring state.
