Reports of Syrian army deployment in Afrin are nothing, but a “black propaganda,” Ibrahim Kalin, press-secretary of Turkish President Receipt Erdogan, said Tuesday.
A senior Kurdish official said the day before that Syrian Kurdish forces and the country’s government had agreed on the deployment of Syrian army troops along border positions in the Afrin region to curb the Turkish campaign.
Later in the day, Syrian state television channel Ikhbariya reported that pro-Syrian government forces would enter Syria’s Afrin area “within hours.”
Commenting on the report, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said that if Syrian forces entered Afrin, this would lead to a catastrophe.
