Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" to imply the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.

A video filmed by a Turkish Armed Forces' drone revealed that several trenches dug by YPG/PKK are hindering civilians from leaving the city center of Syria's Afrin.

The Army of Islam said the wounded will be evacuated in stages but made no mention of whether they are rebel fighters or civilians.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Wednesday claimed that Syrian rebels were planning to stage a chemical attack to give the US -led coalition a pretext to strike Damascus.

Footage released by Turkish-backed Syrian militiamen shows their members saying they are taking the Kurdish villages and houses for their own fighters and families. Douma is Eastern Ghouta's largest settlement.

More than 1,100 people have been killed since the large-scale government offensive began on February 18.

Ankara insists that it is carrying out the operation within the framework of worldwide law and its self-defense rights under the United Nations charter. He denounced it as a policy of "demographic change"-a claim rejected by Turkish officials as "absolutely false".

The siege began yesterday, March 12.
