Syrian National Army (SNA)Thursday foiled a YPG/PKK terror attack in northern Syria when they found a bomb-laden lorry during sweep and clear efforts in Tal Abyad.

Tal Abyad falls within the area of Operation Peace Spring, Turkey’s anti-terror operation launched on Oct. 9 to eliminate YPG/PKK terrorists from northern Syria east of the Euphrates River to secure Turkey’s borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees, and ensure Syria’s territorial integrity.

The SNA forces stopped the lorry heading to the district center of Tal Abyad which was cleared of terrorists with Turkey’s operation.
