Turkish post office serves freed Syria city

World Bulletin / News Desk

The Turkish postal service or PTT is now serving a Syrian city liberated from terrorists in 2016 by Turkish soldiers.

A PTT branch in Jarablus, Aleppo has been providing mail, money transfer, and logistical services for Syrians as well as local Turkish officials since last November.

Jarablus was liberated from Daesh terrorists by Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield in September 2016. The operation, which concluded in March 2017, was meant to clear terrorists from areas of Syria bordering Turkey.

The Jarablus PTT is also used to pay salaries to local police forces and Turkish civil servants working in the city.

The branch also handles money, mail, and cargo transfers using the same rates as inside Turkey.

In January, the branch delivered gifts to local orphans from Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.
