Afrin: Turkey to grant citizenship for families of dead FSA fighters
(Zaman Al Wasl)- Turkey will grant families of dead Free Syrian Army fighters the Turkish citizenchip along with more merits, rebel commander told Zaman al-Wasl.

Mustafa Seijeri, head of the Political Bureau in Liwa' al-Mutassem, revealed that a Turkish-Syrian committee had been formed to track the file of martyrs and wounded of the FSA who participated in the Operation Olive Branch to eliminate Kurdish militias from Afrin and other border areas.
Seijeri assured the wife and children of slain FSA fighters to obtain the Turkish citizenship and for their parents if they were not married.

More merits including a flat and compensation are included.
Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch on Jan 20 to clear YPG/PKK-Daesh terrorists from Afrin, according to Andaolu Agency.
'A total of 3,400 terrorists have been neutralized since the start of Operation Olive Branch,' President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday.

Turkish president emphasized that Turkey had never targeted civilians during its operation in Afrin.

"Afrin would have already fallen if we had targeted civilians," he said.
