BEIRUT: A Turkish-led offensive to capture the Kurdish-majority enclave of Afrin in northern Syria has forced 30,000 civilians from its main city in 24 hours, a monitor said Thursday.
"More than 30,000 people were displaced since yesterday (Wednesday) as a result of Turkish bombardment against the city," the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
