HATAY, Turkey (AA) - Turkish security forces on Sunday hit terror targets in northwestern Syria within range of southern Turkish border districts of Hatay, according to Anadolu Agency's correspondents on the ground.

On day 30 of Operation Olive Branch, the Turkish Armed Forces hit PYD/PKK positions within range and sight of Hatay’s Reyhanli, Hassa, and Kirikhan districts.

Turkish Armed Forces also continued to deploy military vehicles at the border close to the operation area.

On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch to clear 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 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.
