KILIS, Turkey (AA) - A rocket fired by PYD/PKK terrorists in Syria hit Turkey’s border province of Kilis on Thursday amid the Turkish-led counter-terrorist operation in the northwestern Afrin region.

According to Anadolu Agency correspondents in the region, the rocket hit an office building in the city center, injuring one.

The injured civilian was brought to the state hospital while security officers secured the area.

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

Since the start of the operation, the PYD/PKK has targeted civilians in cross-border attacks on Turkish neighborhoods.

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.
