Afrin surrendered without resistance: the Kurds fled, tail between their legs
On March 18, pro-Turkish militant forces supported by the Turkish Armed Forces entered the administrative center of northwestern Syria, almost without a fight. Kurdish units knowingly left town. Together with them, thousands of civilians fled to the territory controlled by the Syrian authorities. It is reported that pro-Turkish militants who entered Afrin massacred people and also engaged in looting and marauding.
According to Turkish media, in the enclave the Turks managed to seize a multitude of anti-tank missile systems of both US and Russian origin.
Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Erdogan said that his country intends to restore the captured city, rebuild the infrastructure, after which the Turkish army will leave it. Experts, however, doubt the sincerity of Erdogan's words.
