The statement confirms previous Turkish media reports on the convoy's retreat from the northern Kurdish-held region of Afrin, which has been targeted by Ankara as part of its Olive Branch operation against Kurdish militia in Syria. Precisely, 65 members of Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), People's Protection Units (YPG) and Daesh terrorist organization were killed in Afrin on February 20.
Shortly after the militias entered the enclave, Turkish planes carried out airstrikes around the city, Syrian state TV reported.
Presidential Spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said Wednesday that Turkey does what is best for its national interest, as the country entered the second month of an ongoing operation in northwestern Syria.
"A dozen or so pick-up trucks had come to advance toward Afrin". Ankara recognizes these organizations as terrorists. "One more our comrade was injured", the General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces' statement said.
Amid a complicated military situation in northern Syrian areas, where Turkish and United States forces are present, Ankara stated forward that its army fights against the Kurdish militias Popular Protection Units (YPG) to secure its borders with Syria.
At least 26 Turkish servicemen were killed and over 70 were injured during the Olive Branch operation. The PKK was formed in the late 1970s at a time when the Turkish government banned Kurdish language and culture.
