    Turkish floor forces have crossed the Syrian border into the Kurdish-held enclave of Afrin, the state-run Anadolu information company reported Sunday.

    The Turkish military was reportedly accompanied by Ankara-allied Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters.

    Turkey launched its “Olive Branch” navy operation with an air marketing campaign on Saturday after eight days of cross-border artillery shelling by Turkish troopers.

    Afrin is managed by US-backed Kurdish militias that Turkey describes as “terrorists.”
