Turkish Karar news website revealed on Friday (June 30) a new operation by the Turkish army in northern Syria aimed at targeting PKK-affiliated militants.

The website reported that the Turkish operation, dubbed “Euphrates Sword”, has mobilized 7 thousand of its forces on the border, as it is expected to start operations from west of Azaz in the town of Ain Dokneh and Meng Military Airport until Tel Rifaat, Afrin, and Tel al-Abyad.

The Turkish army has mobilized twice as many military forces as the "Euphrates Shield," the website reported, noting that the operation is set to start at the end of July or the beginning of August and will go on until all of the PKK-affiliarted YPG militants have been expelled from Syria’s north.

The latest Turkish reinforcements in northern Syria come hours after the Russian army withdrew part of its forces from the military camp it established in the village of Kafr Jannah, east of the YPG-controlled city of Afrin.
