Bombardment and heavy fighting in Afrin


Hediye Yusuf told The Associated Press that Turkey has not captured Afrin and fighting continues on Sunday.

Yusuf, a founding member of the self-declared Democratic Federal System of Northern Syria, said Kurdish forces evacuated civilians from the city because of the “massacres” by Turkish and Ankara-aligned forces.

Local sources say that heavy fighting emerged in the north-east part of the besieged city and the clashes between YPG/YPJ and the Turkish army continue since Saturday night.

Turkish army also continues to bomb the city center with airplanes and howitzers. Several buildings were destroyed during the bombardment.

Internet and telephone lines were also cut off in Afrin and no information could be gathered about the results of the clashes and the bombings.
