Russian Military Says Will Respond if US Strikes Syria

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.

"Today, as the operation entered its 54th day, nearly 3,500 terrorists have been neutralised and about 1,300 square kilometres of land cleared of terrorists", Erdogan said.

President Tayyip Erdogan's remarks about Turkey's military and its rebel allies capturing northern Syria's Afrin town refer to the completion of the town's encirclement by Wednesday evening, not its fall, a source in Erdogan's office said. 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.

Erdogan says civilians are being led out of Afrin through a special corridor as the Turkish military and Free Syrian Army encircle the centre of the town. Tillerson has since been sacked by Trump, placing a question mark over whether any talks will go ahead.
