Turkey establishes 29 aid distribution centers in Syria’s Afrin
ANKARA – Anadolu Agency
“The [Turkish] Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) and the Turkish Red Crescent have established aid distribution centers in 29 locations in Afrin’s town centers and villages to provide food and personal care items,” Akdağ told daily Habertürk. Akdağ said the amount of the aid packages would suffice for the families for almost a month.
The deputy prime minister stressed that none of his country’s allies helped Turkey in its fight against terrorism and said the fight would continue until the elimination of the terror threat.
Turkey launched “Operation Olive Branch” on Jan. 20 to clear the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) from Afrin in northwestern Syria.
