Turkey: Afrin targeted by widespread 'Olive Branch' bombing raids

Footage filmed from Turkish border province of Hatay shows smoke billowing above the Syrian city of Afrin on Saturday, as Turkey continues its ground operation against Kurdish forces in Syria. Turkish war planes have launched airstrikes on Kurdish positions in Afrin at 14:00 GMT, after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the launch of the military operation dubbed 'Olive Branch... Еще'. The President also declared that the next destination for the Turkish forces would be Syria's Manbij. Turkey views the People's Protection Units (YPG), which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned militant group Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
