As Turkish AKP government's military offensive continues in Syria’s Afrin in cooperation with the ‘Free Syrian Army’, Mustafa Sejari, a senior official from the FSA, announced on Twitter what Turkish government grants for the families of killed FSA members in Afrin.

According to Sejari, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government entitles Turkish citizenship to the wives and children of killed FSA fighters while the parents of unmarried fighters enjoy the same right.

Mustafa Sejari says that the Turkish government grants $7,75 thousand for the families of killed FSA fighters and $3,87 thousand for those who face permanent disability after clashes.

As the FSA members having permanent disabilities are also entitled with Turkish citizenship, the families of killed members are granted with housing rights around Turkey.

As the Afrin operation has left 53 days behind, 44 Turkish troops lost their lives while many more wounded until today during the clashes between the cooperation of Turkish Armed Forces and the FSA versus the Kurdish YPG forces in Syria.
