KILIS, Turkey (AA) - Five civilians suffered injuries when rockets fired by PYD/PKK terrorists in Syria hit Turkey’s border province of Kilis on Thursday.

Kilis Governor Mehmet Tekinarslan told Anadolu Agency that two rockets were fired, one of them hitting an office building in the city center. The attacks come amid the Turkish-led counter-terrorist operation in the northwestern Afrin region.

Tekinarslan said the injured were taken to the state hospital while security officers secured the area.

Since the attack, the Turkish military identified the source of the rocket fire, and units stationed around Kilis responded with missiles aimed at the terrorists.

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.
