The Operation Olive Branch -- aimed at eliminating PYD/PKK and Daesh elements in Syria's Afrin -- was launched at 5 p.m. (GMT1400) on Saturday.
The operation was being carried out under the framework of Turkey’s rights based on international law, UN Security Council’s decisions, self-defense rights under the UN charter and respect to Syria's territorial integrity, the military added.
The military also said only terrorist targets were being destroyed and 'utmost importance' was being given to not harm any civilian.
