Regarding the developments in northern Syria and the capture of Afrin city by Turkish military forces, the Press Office of the CC of the KKE issued the following statement:
"The capture of Afrin city in northern Syria is another dangerous link in the chain of imperialist competitions and Turkey's aggressiveness, which with already two military operations and the utilization of mercenaries of the "Free Syrian Army" occupies syrian territory and promotes plan of the country's partition.
The KKE condemns Turkish aggressiveness and the involvement of powerful imperialist forces in Syria. It expresses its solidarity to the Syrian people and especially the people of northern Syria who experience, in the most painful way, the effects of imperialist war".
