Turkish security forces have destroyed 903 mines and 1,720 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in areas within the scope of its most recent anti-terror operation in northern Syria, the country's National Defense Ministry said Saturday.
On Oct. 9, Turkey launched Operation Peace Spring to eliminate terrorists from northern Syria east of the Euphrates river in order to secure Turkey's borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees and ensure Syria's territorial integrity.
The ministry said in a statement that children were often the victims of mines and IEDs planted by PKK/YPG terrorists in the Operation Peace Spring zone.
