The convoy came to Afrin canton in northwest Syria unarmed, as stipulated in an agreement with the Syrian government so it could pass through its territory, and armed themselves in Afrin city. 

The 2,000 odd Kurds came to battle Turkish-led forces who on January 20 launched the “Olive Branch” Operation.

Despite battles going on for over two weeks, the Turkish-led forces are yet to make any significant advances against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) that the Turkish government recognize as a terrorist organization.
