Turkey wants to establish a secure zone 10km within Syria, Deputy Prime Minister Yalcin Akdogan stated on Feb.17.

This zone will  include the town of Azaz.

The move follows Turkish shelling of Syrian Kurds for four successive days.

“What we want is to create a secure strip, including Azaz, 10km deep inside Syria and this zone should be free from clashes,” Akdogan stated in an interview on Turkey’s AHaber television station.
