Syria: Smoke billows from Haj Khalil village after fierce fighting between Turkish and Kurdish forces

Footage from Sunday reveals the aftermath of fierce fighting between Turkish forces and the Kurdish YPG (People's Protection Units) in the village of Haj Khalil in Syria's Raju district, west of Afrin. The clashes were part of Turkey's ongoing Operation 'Olive Branch' offensive. On January 20, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the beginning of the military offensive 'Operation... Еще Olive Branch' against the Kurdish YPG militia. Turkey views the YPG, which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned militant group the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), whose leader is Abdullah Öcalan.
