The Kurdish-language Hawar News Agency (ANHA) quoted local sources in Afrin as saying that the Turkish Army has turned the historical site in Jandariseh into a military base for its soldiers.
The ANHA source said that they were able to gather this information after seeing the Turkish Army build three-meter-high walls near the base. The move comes after the Turkish Army troops were accused of destroying artifacts in the Afrin region of Aleppo to build a base.
They would add that the Turkish Army’s forces have built two military bases between Tal Saloureh and Jandariseh city and in the town of Dervish in Rajou region.
In a relevant development on Friday, a government cultural official said that Turkey is helping the militants excavate historical sites in the areas controlled by the Turkish military in northern Syria.
The Turkish Armed Forces and their allied rebels have controlled the Afrin region since they launched a large-scale offensive at the start of 2018.
Since taking control of Afrin, thousands of civilians have been displaced and their homes now belong to militant groups loyal to the Turkish Armed Forces.
