Turkish Armed Forces along with Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters continue to search and clear the landmines and other explosive devices in order to strengthen security in Afrin, Syria.

Turkish troops and FSA have launched a new operation to search for tunnels and hideouts in the Hasan Deyra mountain near Afrin’s Bulbul district.

"As FSA, we are in the search activities with our brothers from the Turkish army," Abu Jumma, an FSA commander, told Anadolu Agency.

"We will find and destroy landmines planted by terrorists in the region for the safe return of civilians into Afrin," Jumma said.
