Afrin The Kurdish city in Syria (Souria)

عفرين Afrin
In Ottoman Age, Afrin city was a shelter for passengers and their animals; it was near the roman bridge..
Afrin city has a population of nearly 80,000 people to the census for 6 towns. But Afrin region has a population of about 450,000 people according to the documents of civil affairs in the late 2000.
As to the name of Afrin, there are many stories about the origin of its name; some people make it pure Kurdish from ‘Ava riwen’ which means red impure water, others say it is from’’ Avrin’’ which means the flowing water. However, Afrin was first mentioned in the form of ‘Apre’ phonologically and semantically in Assyrian books..
