AZAZ, Syria (AA) - Turkish military on Sunday seized a large number of drug pills on Mount Bursaya after capturing the mountain from PYD/PKK terrorist organization in northern Syria.

The seizure came during the search activities by Turkish military and personnel of Free Syrian Army in the terrorist shelters and positions on the summit of Mount Bursaya.

Earlier, Turkish army and the FSA captured the mountain, as part of the ongoing Operation Olive Branch in Syria's northwestern Afrin region, denying the PYD/PKK terrorist group a strategic peak it has used to launch attacks on civilians in both Turkey and Syria.

The PYD/PKK terrorists have used Mount Bursaya to target civilians in the center of Turkey’s Kilis province and Syria’s Azaz district through mortar shells, artillery, and missiles.

In the past, Captagon, known as courage pill, had been captured by Syrian oppositions in operations against the Bashar Al-Assad regime.

The pill, which was also seized during Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield against Daesh terrorist organization in 2016, is recommended to the militants by the terror groups.

On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch to rid Afrin of PYD/PKK and Daesh terrorists.

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.
