Occupation forces start field fires in two villages in Til Temir
Arson in northern Syria is one of the methods of Turkey’s war in North-East Syria and targets agriculture, the main source of income in the region.
Artillery attacks by the Turkish army and allied mercenaries have started fires in cultivated lands in two villages of Til Temir on Saturday.
Fires continue to rage in the villages of Erisha and Til Tewil.
Since the beginning of May, the Turkish occupation forces and their Islamist proxies have intensified attacks on agricultural lands in the Federation of North and East Syria.
Arson in northern Syria is one of the methods of Turkish warfare that is contrary to international law. Agriculture is the main source of income in the region and is systematically attacked.
According to the ANF, almost forty agricultural areas were burned in May in the regions of Girê Spî, al-Bab, Ain Isa, Til Temir, Shehba, Shera, Sherawa and Kobanê. The fires affected dozens of villages and thousands of people.
The Turkish state and the ISIS burned hundreds of thousands of hectares of land at harvest time in 2019 to damage the economy of the autonomous region.
