Operation Olive Branch was launched by Turkey on January 20 to remove the PKK/PYD/YPG/KCK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin in northwestern Syria.

Turkey views the YPG as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which is deemed a terrorist group by the U.S., the European Union and Turkey.

A total of 3,347 terrorists have been "neutralized" since the start of Operation Olive Branch in Syria's northwestern Afrin region, the Turkish General Staff said in a statement on Monday morning.

Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army fighters are seen with villagers in eastern Afrin, Syria on March 9, 2018. They also took control of the village of Ka'n Kurk in the Jindires district. More than one million people are now in Afrin city and villages around it after fleeing the fighting, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor group.

Erdogan said that Turkey shares a 911-kilometer (566-mile) border with Syria, adding that it has been harassed by both terrorist groups and the Syrian regime.

"Of course, Turkey will not permit this", Ramazani said.

"The global community must support the resistance of Afrin people and break silence towards the invasive attacks", it said, calling on the UNSC to establish a no-fly-zone over Afrin. Erdogan also denounced North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on Sunday, accusing the Western military alliance of failing to back Turkey's campaign.

"With these things happening in Syria, when will you, NATO, take our side?" he said. Erdogan said in remarks to supporters in Bolu, a city east of Istanbul.

"We have a 911-kilometer border [with Syria] and terrorist organizations are harassing us constantly from this border". Unfortunately, until now, there has not been a positive word or voice. "Are we not a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member?"

Foreigners who returned to their home countries, after completing their undergraduate and graduate studies in Turkey, have voiced support for Operation Olive Branch in northwestern Syria.

The YPG too denies any direct organisational links to Turkey's PKK- an assertion backed by a US -led coalition whose air strikes have helped the militia and allied Arab fighters drive Islamic State militants out of tens of thousands of square kilometres of Syria.
