HATAY, Turkey (AA) - One more rocket fired by PYD/PKK terrorists in Syria hit Turkey’s border province of Hatay on Friday as Operation Olive Branch targeting the PKK/KCK/PYD-YPG and Daesh terrorist groups continues in northwestern Syria.
The rocket landed in an empty area near a bazaar in the Mustafa Kemal neighborhood in the Reyhanli district, according to an Anadolu Agency reporter in the area.
No casualties were reported following the incident.
Turkey on Saturday launched Operation Olive Branch to clear PYD/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin, northwestern Syria.
According to the Turkish General Staff, Operation Olive Branch aims to establish security and stability along Turkish borders and the region as well as to protect the Syrian people from the oppression and cruelty of terrorists.
The operation is being carried out under the framework of Turkey’s rights based on international law, UN Security Council decisions, self-defense rights under the UN Charter and respect for Syria's territorial integrity.
