Erdogan has said the Kurdish YPG militia is trying to establish a "terror corridor" on Turkey's southern border, linking Afrin with a large Kurdish-controlled area to the east.
Turkey will intervene "if the terrorists in Afrin do not surrender", Erdogan had said Saturday, adding that any venture in the region had no chance of success without Turkey's consent, referring to the PYD/PKK terror group's effort to settle in Syria's northern regions along the Turkish border.

The force will deploy along the border with Turkey to the north, the Iraqi border to the southeast and along the Euphrates River Valley, which broadly acts as the dividing line separating the USA -backed SDF and Syrian government forces backed by Iran and Russian Federation. The Kurds received US backing as the most effective local proxies against Islamic State in Syria, and the policy of arming them stoked tension between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies. "We know this. This is not what allies do", Erdogan said. "It is absolutely not possible for this to be accepted".
