Despite hundreds of aerial and artillery strikes…the Turkish forces, the factions and the Gray Wolves control during 11 days 3% of villages of Afrin area
After the death and injury of more than 250 Syrian citizens since the start of Operation “Olive Branch”, hundreds of thousands of residents and displaced people suffer miserable and tragic humanitarian situations

There's reports, unconfirmed as yet by any major news source, that the Russians are hammering with air strikes and Syrian artillery shelling areas ahead of the Turkish convoy, preventing them from passing. Turkish convoy has apparently been seen headed back in the direction of Turkey.
The convoy was accompanied/escorted by Al Qaeda and affiliates from the Turkish border the whole time.
Videos on twitter showing the aftermath of a Russian air strike near an area the Turkish convoy was approaching before it was forced to stop.
The live Syria map seems to confirm those reports from the ground on twitter. TSK convoy stopped and retreated.
