Two injured in Turkish UCAV attack in Manbij

The Turkish state has intensified its occupation attacks against Manbij.

An unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) of the invading Turkish state bombed the village of Hoşeriyê, north of Manbij, on Thursday. Shahir Himêdî Xelawî (24) and another unnamed person were wounded in the bombardment.

The wounded were taken to the Manbij Hospital. According to reports, Shahir Himêdî Xelawî was operated on and is in serious condition.

Earlier today, the invading Turkish state forces bombed the village of Hosheriye to the north of Manbij, injuring a resident of the village.

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.
