Six rockets launched from the northern Syrian city of Qamishli landed in the center of the Turkish border town of Nusaybin, the Anadolu news agency said late on October 9.
The Turkish state-run agency didn’t provide further information on the attack, which didn’t result in any serious losses.
Few minutes after the attack, head of the Qamishli Military Council in the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced that their units had targeted Turkish positions across the border, without clarifying if he was referring to the rocket attack on Nusaybin.
“Our operations against the occupation army will continue in case the Turkish attack on the northern and eastern regions of Syria, go on,” Bilnik Qamishlo said, according to the Hawar News Agency (ANHA).
The rocket attack on Nusaybin appears to be the first response to “Operation Peace Spring,” which was launched by the Turkish military and the so-called National Syrian Army (NSA) a few hours ago.
The Turkish operation already claimed the lives of two civilians, who were killed as a result of the airstrikes on the border line.
