Terrified children, empty streets in Syria's Afrin as Turkey attacksAs soon as Turkish warplanes began bombing raids over Afrin on Saturday, terrified residents of the Syrian Kurdish enclave dashed to take cover in the cellars of their homes. “My four-year-old son is terrified every time he hears the sound of an airplane,” said Nisrin, a housewife in Afrin who asked that her real name not be used. Turkey and allied Syrian rebels on Saturday began an air and ground operation, dubbed operation “Olive Branch”, aimed at ousting the YPG from Kurdish-majority Afrin.
