Turkish, Free Syrian Army Forces Free Village İn Afrin

Village of Hecika, Rajo in western Afrin, Syria cleared of PYD/PKK terrorists as part of Turkish led operation.

Turkish and Free Syrian Army (FSA) forces on Sunday liberated another village from PYD/PKK terrorists in Afrin, northwestern Syria, according to correspondents on the ground.

Anadolu Agency reporters in the region said that the village of Hecika in Rajo, western Afrin was cleared of PYD/PKK terrorists as part of the ongoing Operation Olive Branch.

The village marked the 66th area liberated from terrorists, including 45 villages and 17 strategic mountains or hills.

Turkey on Jan. 20 launched Operation Olive Branch to remove PYD/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin.

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

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 has also said that only terrorist targets are being destroyed and the "utmost care" is being taken to avoid harming any civilians.

Afrin has been a major hideout for the PYD/PKK since July 2012, when the Assad regime in Syria left the city to the terror group without a fight. -
