Beirut:A convoy of pro-government fighters entered Syria's Afrin region on Tuesday, a monitor said, as Turkey pressed its assault on the Kurdish-controlled enclave.

"Hundreds of fighters entered the Afrin region on Tuesday afternoon," said Rami Abdel Rahman , head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Syria's state media had said on Monday that pro-Damascus forces would head to Afrin to "join the resistance against the Turkish aggression".APP/AFP
