Turkish FM says Turkey will not allow looting in Afrin

Turkey will not tolerate looting in areas of Afrin, northwestern Syria liberated from terrorists by Turkish-backed forces, said Turkey’s foreign minister on Tuesday.

“We are sensitive to looting or inhuman treatment, we will not allow them [in Afrin],” Mevlut Cavusoglu told a joint press conference in the capital Ankara alongside his Turkish Cypriot counterpart Kudret Ozersay.

On Sunday, Turkish troops and Free Syrian Army fighters liberated the Afrin town center — the major urban area in the Afrin region — from YPG/PKK terrorists as part of Operation Olive Branch launched on Jan. 20.
