Why Azaz is so important for Turkish forces

Syria -Azaz

What concerns the Turks is not just the strategic location of Azaz and Afrin, but that Ankara is trying to prevent the two cities from falling into the hands of the Kurdish fighters.

The aim is to prevent the Kurd’s control over a large area adjacent to the Turkish border, which might create a complicated situation for Ankara, and allow Kurdish fighters to have a territorial continuity extending from the town of Ain Al-Arab Kubani passing through Jarabulus, which is under the control of ISIS now, to Azaz.
