Kurds march in Strasbourg, Paris against Turkey's Syria offensive

The recent figures from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the civilian death toll at 68, including 21 children and 12 women. Ankara Gov. Ercan Topaca said three people had sustained light injuries from flying debris at the scene of Thursday's explosion. One soldier was also killed on the Turkish side of the border.

The statement said one soldier was martyred in clashes with PKK/KCK/PYD-YPG and Daesh terror groups and the other in Turkey's Kilis province in an attack perpetrated by the same terror groups.

Seven Turkish soldiers were killed Saturday in Turkey's offensive against Kurdish militia inside Syria, including five who died in a single attack on a tank, the army said.

According to the Turkish General Staff, Operation Olive Branch aims to establish security and stability along Turkish borders and the region as well as to protect Syrians from terrorist oppression and cruelty.

The Turkish military campaign against Afrin started in January, aiming to eliminate the Kurdish forces on the Syrian-Turkish border.
