Turkish forces and their Free Syrian Army (FSA) terrorist allies took control of the town of Jandaris in Syria’s Afrin as part of Operation Olive Branch, media reported Thursday, giving them control of one of the largest settlements in Syria's northwest Afrin region.

The forces pushed fighters from the Syrian Kurdish YPG out of the town centre on Thursday following intense clashes, state-run Anadolu news agency reported. 

Turkey and its allies have so far seized five of the seven urban centres in the Afrin region, it said.

On January 20, Ankara, jointly with the FSA forces, launched Operation Olive Branch in Afrin in order to "clear" Turkey's Syrian border from the terrorist threat.
