Syrian Artillery Pounds Turkish Post In Northwestern Hama - Second Time This Week

Illustrative image

For the second time this week, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) artillery pounded an observation post of the Turkish military near the town of Shir Mughar in northwestern Hama.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that the artillery strike, which took place at the late hours of June 29, coincided with the return of a Turkish unit that was conducting a patrol in Idlib’s demilitarized zone.

Earlier this week, a similar artillery strike on the same observation post killed a Turkish service member and injured several others. The Syrian state TV confirmed that the SAA was responsible for the attack, claiming that it was a response to a rocket strike on civilian areas.

Following the incident, the Turkish military reinforced Shir Mughar’s observation post. More personnel and weapons were reportedly deployed there.

Turkey’s Ministry of National Defense has not commented on the new incident, yet. However, the upcoming few hours may witness a limited Turkish response, similar to what we saw following the last attack.
