Turkey briefs heads of diplomatic missions on Afrin

The interesting thing is that on March 5, the day when the Pentagon spokesman accused Turkey of distracting from the fight against ISIL, Turkish police detained 16 ISIL militants who had infiltrated from Iraq and Syria and were allegedly preparing attacks against US targets.

Despite the vagueness of the Pentagon statement, it is clear that the U.S. in now admitting to the departure of Kurdish forces from battles against Islamic State insurgents both in the past six weeks since the Turkish Army and allied militias kicked-off their Afrin operation and still currently.

In relation to Turkey's Operation Olive Branch in Afrin, Syria started on January 20 with the aim of eliminating terrorists along the borders and enabling Syrians to return to their homes, Bahçeli stressed that Turkey respects the territorial integrity of Syria, and the operation has been conducted within this framework. Ankara considers YPG to be an extension of the PKK, which is recognised as a terror group by Turkey, US and the EU.

Pentagon spokesman Colonel Robert Manning told reporters the pause meant that some ground operations by the SDF, a US-backed umbrella group dominated by the YPG, had been temporarily put on hold.

The US strategy for fighting against ISIS within Syria has been to provide air support and artillery to target the area of the operation and throw Kurdish YPG fighters into the situation until they take over the territory.

In the meantime, Turkey's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hami Aksoy has repeated Turkey's call to the United States to stop working with the YPG in Syria.

Bahçeli highlighted that while the USA arms support of the YPG continues and the terrorists are openly trained, stepping back is not an option until all the terrorists are eliminated.

Allegations have been made against Turkey over the deaths of civilians during the Afrin operation. Indeed, before departing for Germany on March 6, Foreign Minister Çavuşoğlu said Ankara was exhausted of stalling and would request a timetable from the U.S.in order to have more confidence in its sincerity.

Damascus has condemned the operation as a violation of Syria's sovereignty.
