Afrin Canton Co-Chair: 'We Called on Syrian Army to Protect us'

Despite Ankara assuring the Syrian government that its operation in Afrin aims to protect exclusively the Turkish security, Damascus has firmly condemned the military campaign as an assault on the country's sovereignty.

The co-chairman of Afrin Canton, which was unilaterally proclaimed by the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) in northern Syria, Hevi Mustafa, in an interview with Sputnik Turkey denied the media reports concerning negotiations on the transfer of the district to Syrian government troops.

"All this information about the negotiations on the surrender of Afrin to the Syrian authorities is untrue. Attacks on Afrin occur because we do not intend to transfer this territory to the Syrian regime. "

According to Mustafa, representatives of the PYD appealed to the Syrian army to take part in the protection of Afrin from the Turkish armed forces that have been conducting an operation there since January 20.
