Another rocket fired into Turkey from Afrin lands in Kilis, 2 injured

One more rocket fired from Syria’s northwestern province of Afrin by suspected militants of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) hit Turkey’s border province of Kilis on Jan. 27.

The rocket hit the roof of a five-story building in the neighborhood of 7 Aralık at around 3.00 p.m. in the city center, state-run Anadolu Agency has reported. 

Two people were injured following the incident.

Ambulances and security forces were sent to the scene, and the injured
were taken to Kilis State Hospital.

Turkey on Jan. 20 launched “Operation Olive Branch” against the YPG in Syria’s Afrin and vowed to expand it to the Manbij area of Syria, where YPG troops are located along with U.S. forces.

The General Staff states that the operation aims to establish security and stability along Turkish borders and the region, as well as to protect Syrians.
