Afrin - Aleppo

On Tuesday, the pro-Syrian government media and the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) published videos showing loyalist forces enter into the area of Afrin, north of Aleppo, Northern Syria.

The published videos show heavy machine-gun vehicles, and members stating that these mark the arrival of the loyalist forces in Afrin.

This comes despite Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's earlier statement that loyalist forces would not be able to enter Afrin, after the former had found backing from Russian counterpart, Putin.

Kurdish officials said that an agreement had been reached between the YPG and the government. The agreement states that the government deploy its forces in Afrin to stop the Turkish Army-backed Free Syrian Army attack against the YPG. Turkey on the other hand, considers that such a move will cause a "disaster".
