Turkish rockets have been fired from the Hatay Province in the south of Turkey on Friday, as Turkey's 'Olive Branch' operation against Kurdish-held targets in the Afrin province of Syria continues.

The Turkish military started launching airstrikes and rockets on Kurdish positions in Afrin shortly after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the launch of the military operation dubbed 'Olive Branch.' The Turkish President also declared that the next destination for Turkish forces would be Syria's Manbij.

Turkey views the People's Protection Units (YPG), which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned militant group Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
