Turkey restored electricity in northern Syria which was cleared of YPG/PKK terrorists by its anti-terror operation launched last month, said the country’s Defense Ministry.

“Efforts are continuing to help life return to normal in Ras al-Ayn's Nukra village which has no water or electricity access,” said the ministry on Twitter.

“To find a solution a 75 KW electricity generator was set up,” it added.

Turkey on Oct. 9 launched Operation Peace Spring to eliminate terrorists from northern Syria east of the Euphrates River in order to secure Turkey’s borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees, and ensure Syria’s territorial integrity.

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. The YPG is the PKK’s Syrian offshoot.
