Turkey Plans To Set Up New Camps İn Afrin

Turkish Deputy PM says camps will cater to civilian needs.

Turkey is preparing to set up new camps for civilians in northern Syria where an operation is underway, Deputy Prime Minister Recep Akdag said Saturday.

On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch to clear PYD/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin.

Akdag said the camps catering to civilian needs will be similar to those which were built after Operation Euphrates Shield.

Operation Euphrates Shield was conducted jointly by the Turkish Armed Forces and the Free Syrian Army (FSA), from August 2016 to late March 2017, to improve security, support coalition forces and eliminate terror threats along the Turkish border.

His remarks came during a visit to the Ordu Governorship in Turkey's Black Sea province.

He added that the camps will be equipped with tents, bathrooms and water wells.

According to the Turkish General Staff, the ongoing operation aims to establish security and stability along Turkey's borders and the region as well as protect Syrians from terrorist oppression and cruelty.

The operation is being carried out under the framework of Turkey's rights based on international law, UN Security Council resolutions, its self-defense rights under the UN charter, and respect for Syria's territorial integrity, it said.

The military also said only terror targets were being destroyed and that "utmost care" is being taken to not harm civilians. -
