Czech authorities arrested Muslim in Prague on Saturday.

Turkey's policy have detained 845 people for the participation in protests and an Internet campaign against Ankara's operation in Syria's district of Afrin since its start, the Turkish Interior Ministry said in a statement.

Turkey on Monday said it had formally asked for the extradition of one of the most prominent leaders of the Syrian Kurds, who was detained by Czech police at the weekend at Ankara's request.

Muslim was put on Turkey's most-wanted list earlier in February with a reward for $1 million. However an official at Interpol's headquarters in Lyon, France, said Monday that the police agency has not issued a worldwide red notice for his arrest.

Erdogan slams 'worldwide war of propaganda' against Turkey

"The justice ministry has completed its preparations (for extradition) and this file has been sent to the Czech judicial authorities as of yesterday", Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said.

"The president. stressed that the humanitarian truce applied to all of Syria, including Afrin, and should be implemented everywhere and by all without any delay", Macron's office said after a call with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan. The YPG, which controls several enclaves in northern Syria, including Afrin, secured the territories from Islamist rebels and other extremist groups over the course of the Syrian conflict with the US-led coalition's backing.

The PKK is proscribed as a terror group by Ankara and its Western allies but the USA has been working closely with the YPG against the Islamic State extremist group in Syria.

The new forces are expected to hold villages taken by Turkish troops from the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) as well as to take part in urban combat as Turkey's Operation Olive Branch apparently moves from the countryside to the major settlements.
