HATAY, Turkey (AA) - Turkish security forces on Wednesday caught a PYD/PKK terrorist in a rural area of Syria’s northwestern Afrin region.

The 20-year-old terrorist was found injured when he was captured by Turkish security forces.

On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch to clear PYD/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin, northwestern Syria.

According to the Turkish General Staff, the operation aims to establish security and stability along Turkey’s borders and the region as well as to 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 are being destroyed and that "utmost care" is being put on avoiding harming civilians.
