  • 800 terrorists killed in Syria's Afrin: Turkey's Erdogan

Since the start of the operation, the PYD/PKK has carried out cross-border attacks on Turkey by firing rockets on civilian neighborhoods.

Human Rights Watch spoke to 16 Syrian refugees who were smuggled into Turkey previous year.

On Thursday, one Turkish soldier was martyred and five others injured in a missile attack by PYD/PKK terrorists which was launched from northern Iraq toward a military base in Hakkari's border district of Cukurca.

In a statement by the Turkish General Staff it said that a total of 538 terrorist targets were also hit since the beginning of the Operation Oliven Branch.

Asylum seekers also must travel a unsafe terrain "littered with landmines, steep climbs, narrow paths along ravines, and valleys".

About the rocket attacks carried out by the YPG/PKK militants based in Syria on Turkey, he blamed the US and European countries for providing weapons to the terror group.

Turkey, which hosts an estimated 3.5 million Syrian refugees, has tried to push back anyone trying to enter across its southern border since August 2015. But the group said, "Turkey's generous hosting of large numbers of Syrians does not absolve it of its responsibility to help those seeking protection at its borders".

Since the beginning of Operation Olive Branch in Syria's Afrin, 897 terrorists have been killed, Turkey's General Staff said in a message February 3.

Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch on January 20 to clear YPG and ISIL militants from Afrin in northwestern Syria.

He also said Turkey was aware of some neighboring countries' unhappiness over the role Turkey was playing in Syria.
