16 Killed In Rocket Attack On Turkish-Occupied Afrin, Kurdish Forces Blamed (Videos, Photos)

Illustrative image.

On June 12, at least 16 people were killed and dozens others were wounded when a barrage of rockets struck the Turkish-occupied Syrian city of Afrin in the northern countryside of Aleppo.

Most of the rockets landed in residential areas in the city. The al-Shifa’a hospital was hit. There, a doctor, three nurses were killed. The White Helmets organization also announced that three of its members had been killed.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the remaining casualties included three women, a child and a commander of Turkish-backed forces.

The rockets were reportedly launched from a strip of land south of Afrin held by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Syrian Arab Army.

The Turkish Ministry of National Defense said that Kurdish forces were behind the deadly attack. Nevertheless, Farhad Shami, director of the SDF’s Media Center, denied these allegations in an official statement.

In response to the attack, the Turkish artillery pounded SDF positions in the town of Tell Rifaat and its surroundings to the south of Afrin. No casualties were reported.

The deadly rocket attack may lead to a serious military escalation between Turkish forces and the SDF in northern Aleppo. The two sides share a long frontline in the region, from Manbij all the way to Afrin.

Any Turk who still supports the masonic Muslim Brotherhood Islamo-fascitst Merdobegone deserves to be on a casaulty list. Turk pride and love of country is one thing, Erdogan, on the other hand, is just a Muslim version of Satanyahoo & Co. Come to think of it, they were friends too at one time and I bet all the shekels in Shekeldom that behind the scenes, they still are.
