Turkey's General Staff: Nearly 900 terrorists killed in Operation Olive Branch

Commandos raise Turkish flag on liberated Mount Darmiq

A prosecutor this week ordered the detention of 11 senior members of the Turkish Medical Association (TTB), including its chairman, after the organisation criticised the incursion into Syria´s Afrin, saying "No to war, peace immediately".

Turkey's General Staff has sent text messages to the population of Syria's Afrin city urging to resist terrorists, Turkish media reported February 2 quoting a military source. A ninth suspect was killed during the operation to round up the group, they said.

Afrin has been a major hideout for the PYD/PKK since July 2012 when the Assad regime in Syria left the city to the terror group without a fight.

Ankara launched a cross-border offensive into Afrin on January 20 to rout the Syrian Kurdish militia it says is linked to insurgents fighting inside Turkey.

Touching on the global actors' stance toward Turkey's ongoing Afrin operation, Yalçın stated that Russian Federation might aim to show the YPG that the USA can desert it at any moment.

According to the message, 74 terrorists have been eliminated today and Operation Olive Branch is being successfully carried out.
