YPG/PKK terrorists carried out 14 attacks in last 36 hours, while Turkish Armed Forces have fully complied with the deal on establishment of safe zone, said Turkish National Defense Ministry Saturday on Twitter, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

In the last 36 hours, a total of 14 harassments and attacks were carried out by PKK/YPG terrorists, 12 of which were in the Ras al-Ayn, one in Tal Abyad and one in Tall Tamr, the ministry said.

On Thursday, Turkey agreed for 120 hours to allow the withdrawal of terrorist YPG/PKK forces from the planned safe zone.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence also agreed on Turkey having 20 miles (32 kilometers) of safe zone south of the Turkish border in Syria.

On Oct. 9, Turkey had 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 YPG/PKK.
