Turkey opens emergency hospital in Afrin, Syria

AFRIN, Syria

About a month after liberating the region across Turkey’s border from terrorists, the Turkish military has opened an emergency services hospital in Afrin, northwestern Syria.

The hospital, which can treat 400 patients a day, provides residents in the town of Jinderes with free medicine and treatments.

In addition to emergency medicine, it also offers services in pediatrics, internal medicine, physical therapy, ear, nose and throat, labs, radiology, anesthesiology, eye care, and general surgery.

Future departments are expected to include dentistry and gynecology.

On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch with the aim of eliminating YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin.

According to the Turkish General Staff, the operation aims to establish security and stability along Turkey’s borders and the region as well as to protect Syrians from the oppression and cruelty of terrorists.

On March 18, Syrian forces, backed by Turkish troops, liberated Afrin's town center.

The Turkish Armed Forces are now working to restore everyday life in Afrin by providing much-needed humanitarian aid.
