DUBAI - Iran on Sunday called for a quick end to a Turkish incursion into northern Syria's Afrin province, saying it may help "terrorist" groups, state news agency IRNA reported.

"Iran hopes that this operation will be ended immediately to prevent a deepening of the crisis in the border regions of Turkey and Syria," it quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi as saying. "A continued crisis in Afrin may boost ...terrorist groups in northern Syria."
