The statement comes a day after Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Ankara would target the PKK, which is banned as a terrorist organization in Turkey, not the Kurds in general.
Later on, it was reported that the Turkish Armed Forces had shelled the YPG in Afrin, reportedly covering seven settlement, allegedly causing civilian casualties, with a 6-year old child among wounded.
Following the reported shelling Kurds in Syria's Afrin said, they would not allow the Turkish army to freely enter the city in case of a potential offensive by Ankara.
Earlier this week, thousands of them took to the streets in Afrin protesting against the Turkish invasion and calling for international assistance. Several rallies were also held across cities in northern Syria.
