Jarablus was liberated from Daesh terrorists by Turkey's Operation Euphrates Shield in September 2016.

Turkey said Thursday it could launch a cross-border military operation against Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) elements in Iraq in cooperation with the Iraqi army.

Cavusoglu said Turkey's offensive into northern Syria's Afrin region against the Syrian Kurdish militia, will also be completed by May.

"Then we will also clear Manbij, Ayn al-Arab, Tal Abyad, Resulayn and Kamisli of terrorists, Erdogan added, naming other Syria cities near Turkey's borders".

"By May, the operation in Afrin will come to an end", Çavuşoğlu is quoted as saying by Turkish media.

"We are removing the last remaining obstacles standing before our besieging of Afrin city centre".
