A YPG/PKK terror group’s drone was downed on Wednesday in Ras al-Ayn, a district in northern Syria near the Turkish border.
A handmade drone of YPG/PKK was downed in Ras al-Ayn district, which was liberated from terrorists on Sunday as part of Turkey’s anti-terror operation in northern Syria.
Additionally, a Grad missile launcher and anti-tank missiles were also seized, as part of the ongoing operations in the region.
On Oct. 9, Turkey launched Operation Peace Spring to eliminate terrorists from northern Syria in order to secure Turkey’s borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees, and ensure Syria’s territorial integrity.
Ankara wants to clear northern Syria east of the Euphrates River of the terrorist PKK and its Syrian offshoot, the PYD/YPG.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the European Union — has been responsible for deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
