  • Turkey continues renovation work of 1,700-year-old Nabi Huri tomb in Afrin, northern Syria, local authorities announced on Wednesday.
  • Afrin – just across Turkey’s southern border – was liberated from the terrorist YPG/PKK by Turkey’s Operation Olive Branch in 2018, but has still been subject to occasional attacks by the YPG/PKK terror group.
  • Turkey continues to take care of the cultural assets in the area, thus, the restoration work was carried out by the Turkish southern Hatay province’s Regional Directorate of Foundations.
