Turkey develops new projects to boost economy in Syria’s Afrin

Turkey continues its efforts to return peace and prosperity to Syria’s northwestern Afrin, which was liberated from Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) terrorists within the scope of Operation Olive Branch in March 2018, by investing in various projects to boost social and economic growth in the region.

Turkey has been developing new projects in trade, agriculture and transportation to end long-lasting deprivation and normalize daily life in the town.

The Olive Branch Customs Gate along the Turkish-Syrian border, which was officially opened on Nov. 8, is one of the ground-breaking projects developed to speed up the delivery of humanitarian aid to the city and meet the infrastructure needs of the region.

On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch in coordination with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) troops to clear terrorist groups from Afrin amid growing threats from the region.
