Turkish attack injures a civilian in Manbij

The Turkish state continues its genocidal campaign against North-East Syria where it has already invaded territories in violation of international law.

The invading Turkish state forces bombed the village of Hosheriye to the north of Manbij on Thursday.

According to reports from the ground, a resident of the village was injured as a result of the attack. Details about the aftermath of the aggression were not immediately available.

Manbij is located 30 kilometers south of the Turkish border and occupies a key strategic position in Turkey's plans to expand its illegal occupation zone in northern Syria. The city, which is administered by the Democratic Autonomous Administration, is located on the important M4 highway, which runs through northern Syria like a lifeline and was a strategic supply route for ISIS.

In 2022, Manbij was named by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan as the primary target for a new invasion of northern and eastern Syria. There have been repeated attacks by the Turkish army and allied jihadist militias as well as infiltration attempts aimed primarily at civilian settlement areas with the aim of displacing the population.
