Turkey will lay siege to Syria's Afrin in coming days: Erdogan

Turkey will lay siege to Afrin in northern Syria after launching an offensive against Kurdish militia in the region last month, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said today.

"In the coming days, swiftly, we will lay siege to the centre of the town of Afrin," Erdogan told his ruling party lawmakers in parliament.

His remarks came as Turkeys ground and air offensive against the Peoples Protection Units (YPG) militia, viewed as "terrorists" by Ankara, entered its second month.
