DAMASCUS, July 31 (Xinhua) -- The Turkish army has made a "small incursion" near two Kurdish-controlled towns in Syria's northern city of Ayn al-Arab, also known as Kobane, a well-informed source close to the Kurds told Xinhua on Monday.

The incursion was near the towns of Saftak and Bobani Women's Giorgio Tavecchio Jersey , northwest of Ayn al-Arab, the source said on condition of anonymity.

He added that the incursion was "calm without battles" with the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), noting that the Turkish forces cannot enter Ayn al-Arab, as U.S. military bases are stationed in the city.

The incursion comes as the Turkish forces are amassing fighters near the Syrian borders, as part of Ankara's preparation to unleash an offensive to capture the city of Afreen from the hands of the Kurdish groups in northern Syria.

The aim of the battle is to prevent the Kurdish fighters from linking areas under their control in eastern Syria with western Syria in the northern part of the country near Turkey.

Still, the United States is heavily backing the Kurdish forces Women's Connor Cook Jersey , which could prompt Ankara to put the wide-scale offensive on hold.

Ayn al-Arab is a city in the Aleppo Governorate in northern Syria, lying immediately south of the border with Turkey. As a consequence of the Syrian war, the city has been under control of the Kurdish YPG militia since 2012.

Prior to the Syrian war, Ayn al-Arab reportedly had a population of close to 45 Women's Shilique Calhoun Jersey ,000, with the majority of inhabitants Kurds.

BEIJING, May 23 (Xinhua) -- It was a blast again. It was very likely terrorism-linked again. It was a European country again.

The dozens of casualties in Manchester Arena, mostly young audience, require more than rage, tears and even condemnation. They deserve global serious reflection on why the West-dominated anti-terrorism regime has so far failed to halt the bloodletting alike Women's Johnny Townsend Jersey , not to mention eradicating them once for all.

In the name of justice and peace-making, Washington and its allies have in recent decades seen their counter-terrorism strategies in the Middle East and beyond go under one after another.

Some even backfired. Brutal attacks against innocent civilians in the region have stacked up, humanitarian crisis of refugees have spilled over and new political leaders of the West may find the tricky problems they inherited, such as the hostility against their countries, have sizzled on, if not more.

In his high-profile speech in Saudi Arabia Women's Nick Nelson Jersey , U.S. President Donald Trump has depicted the fight against terrorism as a battle between "good and evil," urging Arab leaders to do their fair share to "drive out" terrorism from their countries.

That is an easy reminder of the speech given by Trump's predecessor Barack Obama in June 2009, when he also vowed to reset America's relations with the Arab world. But as all have observed, he failed.

The top priority of the West is more than to dismantle their obsolete discriminatory counter-terrorism policy; it should consider updating its terrorism criteria, and expand its partner list to even those nations it has felt reluctant to approach.
