President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday said Turkish forces and allied rebels could enter the centre of the Kurdish-held Syrian town of Afrin "at any moment", a day after the capture of another key strategic town.
Turkish forces took over the town of Jindires in southern Afrin on Thursday, removing a major obstacle on the road to Afrin's largest urban center.
"Those who directed Daesh against us yesterday, are today doing the same thing with the Syrian branches of the PKK, the PYD and YPG".
Cavusoglu said the operation could begin after Iraq's parliamentary elections scheduled for May 2018, signalling that Turkish forces may move to northern Iraq following the ongoing operations in northern Syria.
"Today, there were also clashes around Bulbul, where they announced around 30 days ago that they captured, occupied it", he said.
In his speech, Erdogan said the military operation would not end with the seizure of Afrin.
The town of Manbij, east of Afrin, is considered a key flashpoint in any future conflict due to the USA military presence in the area.
Erdogan reiterated Turkey's resolve to advance to Manbij - a region east of Afrin, where the USA has a military presence - and other Syrian Kurdish held locations east of the Euphrates river, once the offensive on the enclave is completed.
Turkey launched operation "Olive Branch" on January 20 against the YPG, a powerful militia that controls the Afrin region in northwest Syria and which Ankara regards as a "terror group".
The terrorist organization continues to negotiate with Iran-backed groups to get Gubar back, the sources said.
According to Turkish officials, the primary agenda of the committee on Syria is Turkey's demand of clearing the PKK-affiliated People's Protection Units' (YPG) from Manbij that lies to the west of the Euphrates River in northern Syria.
Ankara says 42 Turkish soldiers have died in the fight.
Relations between North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies United States and Turkey have been strained over a number of issues, notably the U.S. arming of the YPG.
The US forces in Manbij have recently resisted Turkey's calls for them to leave the area.
