HATAY, Turkey (AA) - Four rockets, fired by PYD/PKK terrorists in Syria, hit Turkey’s border province of Hatay on Friday as Operation Olive Branch targeting the PYD/PKK and Daesh terrorist groups continues in northwestern Syria.

Three rockets were fired late Friday, while another one was fired earlier in the day.

Two of the rockets landed in Reyhanli district and the other two landed in Kirikhan district.

All of the rockets landed in empty areas and no casualties were reported following the incidents, according to Anadolu Agency reporters in the area.

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.
