Named after Turkey’s successful 2019 counterterrorism operation that freed the region from the YPG, the PKK terrorist group’s Syrian offshoot, Peace Spring Street in northern Syria’s Tal Abyad opened with a ceremony.
The street was constructed as part of the local council’s efforts to promote economic development, a goal supported by Turkey.
