BEIRUT - Syria's Kurdish YPG militia said on Tuesday the Syrian government had sent fighters to Syria's northwestern Afrin region to help them defend against a Turkish offensive.

"The Syrian government has responded to the call of the duty and sent military units on this day ... to deploy along the border and take part in defending the unity of Syria's territory and borders," YPG spokesman Nouri Mahmoud said in a statement.
