ANKARA (AA) - A senior journalist affiliated with Anadolu Agency has been injured in a cross-border attack by PYD/PKK terror group while he was covering Turkey’s ongoing operation in Syria’s Afrin region on Friday.

Sarp Ozer got his hand and leg injured when PKK/PYD’s rocket and mortar attack targeted a nearby area, where he was present.

Ozer was taken to the Kirikhan State Hospital in the border province of Hatay.

The journalist’s condition is out of danger.

Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch on Jan. 20 to clear PYD/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin in northwestern Syria.

Since the start of the operation, PYD/PKK cross-border attacks on civilians have killed five people and injured at least 88, including Friday's attack.

According to the Turkish General Staff, Operation Olive Branch 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.
