Turkey resumes bombing campaign in Afrin

Turkish warplanes resumed strikes on Kurdish YPG militia targets in Syria's Afrin region on Friday after a five-day lull that followed the shooting down of Russian warplane elsewhere in Syria, the Hürriyet newspaper and other media reported.

Hürriyet said Turkey had halted air strikes as Russia worked on its air defence system after Syrian rebels shot down a Russian warplane in Idlib province on Feb. 3.
