Turkey’s ‘Operation Olive Branch’ in Syria’s Afrin enters 18th day
AZAZ – Anadolu Agency
Turkish soldiers and Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters have uncovered a four-kilometer-long ditch used by People’s Protection Units (YPG) militants in a village they captured during the ongoing “Operation Olive Branch” in northwestern Syria.
On the 18th day of the operation, the 3.5-meter-deep and 3-meter-wide ditch linking Dikmetaş, under control of the group, and opposition-held Yazıbağ villages was discovered.
Opposition forces, later, filled the ditch with soil and made it unusable.
A total of 36 locations, including 23 villages and 11 strategic hills, have been taken by Turkey so far in the operation.
