Three injured in Turkish drone strike on Til Temir
Three people were injured in a drone strike on the Assyrian village of Tall Damshij in the northeastern Syrian Khabur Valley. Artillery shells fired from the Turkish jihadist occupation zone hit the village of Tall Tawil.
Three people were injured in a drone attack by Turkey on the town of Til Temir in the northeastern Syrian Khabur Valley on Thursday. The attack targeted the Assyrian village of Tall Damshij, about eleven kilometers southeast of the town center. The injured were taken to nearby hospitals. Information on their condition was not initially available.
Meanwhile, artillery shells fired from the Turkish occupation zone are hitting the village of Tall Tawil (also Til Tawil, Assyrian: Bnay Roumta), ten kilometers west of Til Temir. The village has already been under intense artillery fire for days from Turkey and its jihadist allies. Other settlement areas in the Christian-majority Khabur Valley are also under de facto constant fire. On Easter Sunday, a fighter from the Assyrian Khabur guards was killed in a bombardment by the Turkish NATO army in the village of Tall Shanan.
Turkey, together with its Islamist proxy forces, also continues to commit serious human rights violations and war crimes in other regions of the autonomous region of northern and eastern Syria. In Kobanê, three fighters from the Women's Defense Units (YPJ) were killed in a Turkish drone strike on Wednesday.
