SYRIAN WAR REPORT – FEBRUARY 27, 2018: TURKEY GAINS CONTROL OF BORDER STRIP INSIDE AFRIN

On February 26, The Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and the Free Syrian Army linked the TAF-held area in western Aleppo and southwestern Afrin after they had captured the village of Anqalah and nearby points from the Kurdish YPG.

On the same day, the TAF’s general staff said that 2,059 so-called ‘terrorists’ had been neutralized in Operation Olive Branch.

Meanwhile, reports appeared that the YPG is ready to hand over the city of Manbij to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) under a wide-ranging deal which would involve the Syrian-Iranian-Russian alliance in preventing further Turkish advances in Afrin. However, these reports are still unconfirmed.

The Tiger Forces, the Republican Guard and their allies opened a new front against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and Ahrar al-Sham in Eastern Ghouta, attacking their positions northeast of the Armoured Vehicles Base. The main clashes in the area are taking place the Harasta and Dawahirah fronts.
