Turkish Drone Targets Former SDF Headquarters In Northeastern Al-Hasakah (Video)

Donate

A Turkish unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) carried out on January 12 an airstrike on the area held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northeast Syria.

According to the Hawar News Agency (ANHA), the airstrike targeted a building between the town of al-Qahtaniyah and the nearby village of Digire in the northeastern countryside of al-Hasakah.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) revealed that the targeted building is an ex-headquarters of the SDF. According to the monitoring group, several people were injured as a result of the airstrike. It’s unclear yet if any of them are SDF personnel.

This was the second Turkish drone strike on northeast Syria this week. Three days ago, a Turkish armed drone bombed a checkpoint of the SDF’s security forces in northern Raqqa, injuring at least two people.

These Turkish airstrikes, which violate two separate agreements with Russia and the U.S, may lead to a new escalation in northeast Syria.

    “These Turkish airstrikes, which violate two separate agreements with Russia and the U.S, may lead to a new escalation in northeast Syria” –> Agreements clearly says Kurdish Kommunist Party (PKK/YPG/SDF) will stay out of Turkish border by 30 km or 20 miles. Communist guerilla regularly infiltrates by wearing fake SAA uniforms. Small drones take pictures of them & report to Russian side in order to prevent bombing real SAA personal. Communist guerilla can’t stay out of Turkish border. Otherwise would lose political power to the peaceful Kurdish parties coalition ENKS.

      … screaming “Death to Liars” even though the Iranian government told the truth about the PS752 being shot down. Oops … somebody forgot to change the script before letting the crowd of a few thousand hit the streets.
