PKK terrorists attack civilians in Syria’s Afrin WATCH

Turkey in January 2018 launched a major military offensive -- Operation Olive Branch -- with the stated aim of purging Afrin of YPG/PKK terrorist elements.

Afrin was freed from the terrorist group on March 18, 2018, on the operation's 58th day.

Sleeper cells of the terror group in the northwestern city, however, still, occasionally, target civilians through car bombs.
