The Turkish military and their Syrian proxies captured the town of Shinjel in the northwest of Afrin canton.

Before storming the town, Shinjel was rocked with a high volume of airstrikes from the Turkish air force. 

Turkey has prioritized this operation as they consider the YPG to be the Syrian branch of the Turkey-based Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), that they consider to be a terrorist organization.
