Occupation attack injures a woman in a village of Manbij

The Turkish state and jihadist proxies continue their genocidal attacks seeking to invade the entire North-East Syrian territory in violation of international law.

The Turkish occupation army and allied mercenaries have carried out an artillery attack on the village of Awn Dadat to the northeast of the Manbij city on Sunday.

According to a statement by Manbij Military Council (MMC), the bombardment has critically injured a woman residing in the village.

While the injured woman was taken to Manbij Hospital by MMC fighters, the aggression on the village continues.

Minbic is under constant artillery fire from the Turkish army and allied militias. The Manbij Military Council, which is a component of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), is responsible for defending the region. Two weeks ago, the MMC succeeded in destroying a sleeper cell supported by the Turkish secret service MIT.

For more than two and a half years the terrorist militia ISIS ruled over the population in Manbij. On June 1, 2016, the SDF, together with the MMC, launched an offensive at Tishrin Dam to liberate the city. The battle for Manbij, which had been under ISIS terror since 2014, lasted 75 days in total. It was a complete success, in which YPJ fighters played a major role. On August 15, 2016, the Military Council announced the victory over the ISIS. Since then, the city has been administered by a Civil Council in which all population groups and especially women are represented.
