BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Turkish bombardment in Syria’s Afrin region has pushed around 10,000 people to flee their homes since yesterday, the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia said on Thursday.
“The air strikes and artillery shelling have not calmed down,” said Birusk Hasaka, the YPG spokesman in Afrin. “A number of civilians have been displaced, and they are around 10,000 people.”
