On Friday, the Syrian Democratic Forces revealed that 43 SDF fighters killed since the beginning of the Olive Branch operation. The operation was launched by the Turkish army and the Free Syrian Army in Afrin, Aleppo, Northern Syria, against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, the SDF’s main component.

The SDF media center published on its official website that 43 fighters were killed by Turkish bombing, including eight women from the Women’s Protection Units. The center documented 191 raids and 699 artillery shells and mortars, launched by the Turkish army.

The SDF said that 308 FSA and Turkish Army fighters were killed since the beginning of the Afrin battle and that they kept four bodies. The clashes destroyed and damaged armored vehicles.

The SDF added to the toll that the Turkish bombing killed 59 civilians and injured 134 others, pointing out that the attack had spread into Ain Al Arab (Kobani) Manbij and Aleppo, in addition to the Al Jazeera district, Al Hasakah. At the same time, the Turkish Ministry of Health said that 14 Turkish and FSA fighters and soldiers were killed, and 130 others were injured, since the beginning of the Olive Branch operation in Afrin.

Seven days ago, FSA factions, along with Turkish soldiers, started a ground military operation in Afrin from different areas.  The action is called the Olive Branch operation, during which they gained control over several villages and hills in the area, coinciding with the continuing clashes.

The Turkish government said that suspending the Olive Branch operation is non-negotiable. The Turkish President said that the process would continue in Syria, and it will target Manbij, Eastern Aleppo, in which U.S. soldiers are located.
