The campaign, designated as illegal by the Syrian government, has met growing criticism even among Turkey's allies, including the United States, which backs the YPG and other anti-government forces in northern Syria.

YPG spokesman Nouri Mahmoud denied that any government forces or institutions had gone into the zone under their control.

Pro-Damascus militias got into the Afrin district in northwest Syria in order to assist the YPG in resisting against the Turkey and its supportive anti-Assad revolutionary groups attacks.

In a statement, the Turkish General Staff said the convoy was intercepted about 15 kilometers southeast of Afrin.

Ankara, a pro-Assad commander and Kurdish officials have all said recently that Russian Federation intervened to stop Damascus sending the army to defend Afrin after reports of a deal with the Syrian Kurdish forces.

Anglo American plc (NGLOY) Given Consensus Recommendation of "Buy" by Analysts

He also said Turkey was not in direct talks with the Syrian government, but its messages were being conveyed indirectly.

"We have information that they have not reached a deal", Bozdag said in a televised interview.

According to the Minister, Ankara sees no problem in entering the city by Syrian government troops, if they will clear the region from armed Kurdish people's protection Units (YPG).

The claim seems mostly a continuation of Turkey's narrative that the YPG are "terrorists" on the same scale as ISIS, with the hope that this will provide a pretext for continuing the war, as well as scare anyone away from packing the Kurds.
