Turkey on Thursday said it would oust Kurdish militia from the center of Afrin in northern Syria "in a very short time", as pro-Ankara forces surrounded the city.Ankara on Jan. 20 launched a military operation supporting Syrian rebels against the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) militia in its enclave of Afrin.The U.S., which has worked closely with the YPG in the fight against militants, has urged restraint and the operation has increased tension between Turkey and its NATO ally.Turkey has repeatedly warned it could extend its Afrin operation to Manbij, where the U.S. military has a presence, and even further beyond that towards the Iraqi border.
