Green Party Leaders have condemned Turkey’s offensive and invasion of Syria, and its attacks on Afrin in the north-west.
Jonathan Bartley and Caroline Lucas, co-leaders of the Green Party, said:
"Turkey’s ongoing military attacks on Afrin are utterly wrong, and the killing of civilians is morally indefensible. The Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, must urgent make a statement on behalf of the government making clear that they condemn the Turkish Government's actions.
"The people of this region have been targeted by all sides. The atrocities they have suffered at the hands of Daesh are now exacerbated by the military onslaught of the Turkish Government. The British Government should be using all diplomatic means to bring an end to Turkish military incursions - and should start be using urging the UN and others to condemn Turkey's actions."
