According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), Turkish Defense Minister, Nurettin Canikli, says Turkey has enough ammunition and military equipment to eliminate terrorists in Afrin.
He wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday the ammunition being used by Turkish military in Operation Olive Branch is all domestically made.
“All the ammunition our glorious army uses in Afrin Operation is domestically produced,” Nurettin Canikli wrote on his twitter account.
Canikli also said the ammunition stock is enough to clear terror elements from not just Afrin, but from the entire region. He added that the production of the ammunition continues. He noted that 70 percent of the country’s weapons are domestically made which was 18 percent 15 years ago.
Turkey launched a major military operation in Afrin, north-west of Syrian on January 20. The aim of the operation is to clear north-western regions of Syria, bordering Turkey.
