In pictures: The human cost of defending Kurdish Afrin
People gathered in central Afrin to mourn the loss of the defenders of Afrin against a month-long assault by the Turkish military and its proxy forces.
The mostly-Kurdish YPG has been the dominate force in northern Syria.
Fighters from other parts of Rojava have also died in defense of Afrin.
A monitoring group has documented the deaths of Kurds, Arabs, and Armenians in Afrin.
