Aleppo, SANA- Turkish regime forces and its mercenaries uprooted thousands of olive trees in Afrin in northern countryside of Aleppo.

This crime came under the pretext of opening road leading to Hamam village on the Syrian-Turkish border.

On Friday, Turkish occupation forces brought bulldozers to the western countryside of Afrin city and started to raze hundreds of donums planted with fruitful trees, including thousands of olive trees under the pretext of expanding the road between Afrin and the village,” local sources told SANA’s reporter via phone.

The sources stated that the attacks of Turkish forces aim at exerting pressure on the locals and destroying their main incomes to force them to accept dealing with the terrorist organizations there.

The sources called for stopping the crimes of the Turkish regime against the locals and their properties and expelling them from Afrin area and its countryside.
