Since 20 January, Turkey launched a military operation to clean up Kurdish PYD / PKK militia and ISIS militants from Afrin, northwestern Syria. The Turkish military said, since the operation named 'Operation Olive Branch' was started, as many as 1028 members of PYD / PKK and ISIS have been killed or surrendered.

Afrin has been a major hiding place for PYD / PKK since July 2012 when Assad regime forces left the area and let it be under the control of PYD / PKK without any resistance. The Ankara government regards the Kurdish group PYD / PKK as a terror organization.
