A humanitarian worker has lost her life to wounds she sustained in a recent U.S. drone strike on the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.
The humanitarian worker, Dima Abdan, was mourned by her organization, Bonyan, in an official statement released on October 28.
Abden was seriously wounded in a suspected U.S. drone strike that targeted a vehicle near the town of Arab Said in western Idlib on October 15. She was immediately transported to a hospital in Turkey, where she surrendered to her wounds.
“May she rest in peace in heaven. Our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to Dima’s family, teammates, and friends,” the Bonyan Organization said in its statement.
The drone strike reportedly claimed the life of “Abu Zur al-Masri,” a high-ranking Egyptian leader of al-Qaeda-affiliated Horas al-Din.
A series of similar strikes killed several prominent terrorist in Greater Idlib in the last few months. This was, however, the first time a civilian casualty was reported.
The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and the Special Operations Command Central are behind the strikes on Greater Idlib, according to a recent report by the New York Times.
