Breaking : Syrian Democratic Forces Down Turkish Chopper in Afrin – Reports
The Syrian Democratic Forces have downed a Turkish helicopter in the Syrian city of Afrin, an SDF representative told Sputnik Saturday.
Earlier this day, the SDF reported that the group’s militia had downed two Turkish reconnaissance Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) in the village of Adama, northern Syria.
The group also engaged in skirmishes with a Turkish convoy in the Chia district of Afrin and with Turkish forces, supported by the Free Syrian Army, in Qastal Ma’af.
Turkey has been conducting the Olive Branch operation in Syria’s Afrin since January 20, after the US stated that it would train a border protection force comprising the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), affiliated with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), which Turkey considers to be a terrorist group.
