Teen killed in Turkey by rockets from Syria

Why are we still in Syria? Trump has yet to make his case

Turkish air strikes pounded the Syrian border region of Afrin and fighting raged on two fronts as Ankara pursued its offensive against the Kurdish enclave.

Reportedly, battles are also underway to liberate Maranez and Bafel heights.

Turkey launched the military offensive against Afrin on January 20 to drive out the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units, or YPG, a militia it says is an extension of the outlawed Kurdish rebels fighting inside Turkey.

Turkey launched "Operation Olive Branch" against Kurdish forces in Afrin more than a week ago.

Deputy Premier Bozdag has said USA troops may be targeted by Turkish forces for helping the Kurds.

Turkey's 12-day cross-border offensive against the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), which Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan last week threatened to expand, has strained relations with its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

Special prosecutor, Michigan State Police to investigate MSU
Title IX is a federal law that protects people from sexual discrimination in education or other programs receiving federal aid. And yet an unredacted version of MSU's report found that Nassar's behavior was "frankly troubling", reports Michigan Radio .

Turkey considers the YPG to be a terrorist organization and an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party or PKK, which has fought for Kurdish autonomy in Turkey.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim says the French president has a "flawed understanding" of Turkey's cross-border offensive in northwestern Syria.

The Syrian government and a war monitor said on Sunday that Turkish shelling of the Kurdish-held Afrin region of Syria had seriously damaged an ancient temple.

"We continue to monitor the development of the situation in northern Syria; it is deeply concerning", she said.

Manning said he did not know if the USA has agreed to stop arming and training its Syrian allies, another request by Turkey.

In an interview with French newspaper Le Figaro, Mr Macron said Turkey must co-ordinate with allies, and that its operation inside Syria must be limited to fighting terror. The attacks inside Turkey have so far killed four people, including Avlar.
