Turkish soldiers and Free Syrian Army (FSA) units have cleared Sheran town's Serincek village of terrorists in the northwestern Afrin region. Serincek village is located northeast of Afrin. Earlier on Sunday, the Turkish military and the FSA captured Hec Iskendere village in the west of Jinderes in Afrin.

The Arapviran village west of Afrin and near Dikmetaş was also cleared of terrorists. At least 1,369 PKK/KCK/PYD-YPG and Daesh terrorists have been neutralized since the beginning of Operation Olive Branch in Syria's Afrin, the Turkish General Staff said Sunday.

Commando units and FSA fighters are successfully pushing forward, and there is only a distance of three kilometers left until they reach Jinderes, the most important junction on the road to Afrin’s city center.

The only obstacle in the path of the Turkish army and FSA fighters are the explosives positioned by the U.S.-backed terrorist organizations in fields and on roads.

Bombs are found and destroyed individually. Since the beginning of the operation, 50 different strategic areas have been captured from the clutches of terrorists, among them a town center, 32 villages, three rural areas and 13 hills.

Military deployments along Turkey’s border are continuing, and smoke can be seen rising from many points across Afrin.

Operation Olive Branch was initiated on Jan. 20 in Afrin to establish security and stability, eliminate terrorists of PKK/KCK/PYD-YPG and Daesh, and save locals from the terrorists’ oppression and cruelty.
