Civilian injured in artillery attack on Manbij

A 30-year-old man was seriously injured in an attack by Turkish Jihadist occupation forces on a village near the northern Syrian town of Manbij.

A 30-year-old man from the village of Big Ereb Hesen near the northern Syrian city of Manbij was seriously injured in an artillery attack by Turkish Jihadist occupation forces. The attack also caused material damage to the civilian population's cultivation areas.

According to the Rojava-based ANHA news agency, the attack took place early Tuesday morning around 5am local time. A total of six artillery shells were fired from the village of Small Ereb Hesen, which is located opposite. The village is located in the Turkish occupation zone, which is controlled by Islamist allies of the Erdoğan regime.

The victim of the attack is Muhammed Haj Hasan al-Khalaf. According to hospital information, he suffered severe injuries in the abdominal area and had to be operated. An injury to the head was not particularly serious. Nevertheless, he is still being observed and will have to undergo at least one more operation, reports say.

The village of Big Ereb Hesen is always targeted by the Turkish Jihadist occupation forces. A six-year-old girl died there at the end of March in an artillery attack on her parents' house. The child's mother and father were also injured.
