 Turkish Defense Minister: Turkey has taken control of key towns in northeastern Syria


Beijing News Express according to the associated press, on the afternoon of the 12th local time, Turkeys defense minister said through a social platform that Turkey has controlled the key town of RASAL Ayn in northeastern Syria. The Associated Press said this was Turkeys most important achievement in three days of launching military strikes against Kurdish armed forces.

Syrian Human Rights Watch confirmed that the Turkish army has entered Rasal-Ayn and that fighting is continuing.

Turkey has launched a military attack on Syrian Kurdish forces since September 9. The operation code name is Spring of Peace. At present, the fighting has resulted in the death of at least 11 civilians and forced nearly 100,000 people to flee their homes.
