Turkish charity group Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) continues to distribute aid to civilians in Syria's northwestern Afrin town, where the Turkish military and Free Syrian Army wiped out YPG/PKK terrorists.The IHH provides clothing to 100 families every day at the "Charity Bazaar" it established before Eid al Fitr at Afrin city center. Selim Tosun, IHH's media advisor in Syria, told Anadolu Agency that their aid activities continue at the bazaar. Underscoring that they provide cost-free clothing to Syrian families in need at the center, Tosun said: "Those in need are identified and are provided with shopping cards. With these cards, families are able to meet their clothing needs for free. This center [Charity Bazaar] will continue to serve people in Afrin for another year." He said daily life is returning to normalcy after Operation Olive Branch."The lives of people were severely affected in the terror group-held regions for nearly seven years. For this reason, we will continue to support the families via our aid programs," he added.He also noted that the clothes in the bazaar are sewn at a workshop in southern Turkey's Hatay province.Turkey on Jan. 20 launched Operation Olive Branch to remove YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin. On March 18, Turkish troops and Free Syrian Army members liberated the town of Afrin, on the 58th day of the operation.Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since early 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.
