BEIRUT - The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said on Monday it was studying the possibility of sending reinforcements to the Afrin region of northwestern Syria to help fend off a Turkish attack.

"We are in the framework of looking at the possibility of sending more military forces to Afrin," SDF spokesman Kino Gabriel said in a televised news conference, calling for international efforts to halt the Turkish attack.
