The Turkish army and Free Syrian Army (FSA) members are pushing ahead after surrounding the city center of Afrin in northern Syria, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on March 9.

"Right now, Afrin city center is surrounded", said Erdogan at the inauguration of the ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party's Politics Academy in capital Ankara.

Turkey launched its operation, dubbed "Olive Branch", in northern Syria almost seven weeks ago to sweep the Syrian Kurdish YPG from the Turkish border.

"We have besieged Afrin".

"We are in Afrin today, we will be in Manbij tomorrow".

According to him, deployment of YPG militants to north-western Syria is being held under control of the United States military in the region.

He said Abadi "wants to clear all terrorist organizations off the country", the minister said. On a visit to Ankara last month, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that Turkey and the US had to solve the tensions surrounding Manbij as a "priority".

The Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in statements to imply that the militants in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.

Meanwhile, the NTV broadcaster reported that the Turkish Armed Forces had entered the central districts of Afrin together with the Free Syrian Army. The operation is being carried out under the framework of Turkey's rights based on worldwide law, U.N. Security Council resolutions, its self-defense rights under the U.N. Charter and respect for Syria's territorial integrity.

"Jarabulus was 2,000 square-kilometers and we cleared it". He predicted the invasion of Afrin, in northern Syria, would be completed by then.
