Another Turkish serviceman killed in Syria’s Afrin as Kurds announce full mobilization

A Turkish soldier was killed on Tuesday in Afrin, northern Syria, while the Kurds announced a general mobilization against the Turkish-led “Olive Branch” operation.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mouloud Gawishoglu wrote on his Twitter page that a “lieutenant of infantry” had been killed in the military operation “olive branch”.

The number of soldiers killed rose to two after Ankara announced yesterday the death of a soldier in the operation.

In turn, the units of “YPG” called to mobilize and took up arms to defend Afrin against the operations of the Turkish army, in northern Syria on Tuesday.

“We demand that all our people to defend Afrin, and contribute to all related activities,” the statement said.
