Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army forces celebrated the occupation of Afrin by hanging the Turkish flag over Afrin's legislative council building on Sunday, after declaring full control over the city following an eight-week offensive to drive out Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) forces.

The Turkish-backed FSA forces also waved the FSA flag while shooting in the air in celebration of capturing the Syrian city.

According to local media, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier in the day that the center of Syria's Afrin is "entirely under the control" of the Turkish Armed Forces and Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters, inside Turkey's Operation Olive Branch.
