Pro-government Syrian forces started moving towards Kurdish-controlled Afrin enclave in northern Syria, according to the state TV.
The move came just a day after the Syrian government media outlets said the pro-government forces will enter Afrin to support the people in the face of the Turkish-led military operation.
The forces are moving toward Afrin, in the northern countryside of Aleppo province, from Aleppo city, according to the report.
