AP reported that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday: "Hey NATO, where are you?".

"With these things happening in Syria, when will you, NATO, take our side?" he said. We're fighting so much.

In mid-February, Turkey marked 66 years of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation membership.

The US, who has supported the YPG in its campaign to defeat the Islamic State in Syria, does not agree with Ankara's designation and has called on Turkey to limit its operations. Turkey considers the YPG an extension of the PKK.

A total of 3,291 terrorists were eliminated as part of the operation.

The operation is being carried out under the framework of Turkey's rights based on worldwide law, UN Security Council resolutions, its self-defense rights under the UN charter, and respect for Syria's territorial integrity, it said. "But seeing Turkey's adamant position, they did not find [the] resolve to do so", the president said.




Erdogan also stressed that Turkey's only goal in Syria was "fight against terrorism" and that it would withdraw its troops after this goal had been obtained. Ankara is wary of the presence of Kurdish militants close to its borders in Syria, and has been opposed to Washington's efforts to train and arm them in the Arab country.

"Turkey's goal is not capture of the territories of the other states, but only elimination of the terrorism threat in the region".

"We are advancing toward Afrin [city center]".

The recent UNSC resolution, which urged a 30-days Syria-wide ceasefire, has been also used to call upon Erdogan to halt their operations. A report in Aljazeera says that residents of Afrin plan on creating a human chain to protect YPG fighters against Turkey's assault on the city.

The PKK, considered a terrorist organisation by the United States, the European Union and Turkey, has waged a three-decade insurgency in Turkey's largely Kurdish southeast that has killed some 40,000 people.
