Today, Sunday, the Syrian Ministry of Defense revealed that many people were killed, as a result of Turkish air strikes in the north of the country, at dawn today.
And the defense stated in a brief statement: “A number of military martyrs have risen as a result of the Turkish attacks on the Syrian lands in the northern countryside of Aleppo and the countryside of Hasakah at dawn this day.”
In the context, a Syrian civil source explained that 3 Syrian army soldiers were killed and others were wounded as a result of the Turkish warplanes bombing a number of villages in the countryside of Hasakah.
Whereas, the Turkish army announced that it launched more than 20 air raids last night on sites of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which Ankara classifies as a terrorist organization, in northern Syria and Iraq.
Turkey also usually carries out attacks inside Iraq and Syria against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units in Syria and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which has bases and training camps in the Sinjar region and in the mountainous regions of the Iraqi Kurdistan border with Turkey.
While Ankara says that its presence in Syria aims to prevent the threat from the Kurdish factions to it; Damascus confirms that the Turkish presence in the country is an occupation.
While the Iraqi government strongly and repeatedly condemned the Turkish attacks targeting areas in Iraq, and considered them a violation of sovereignty.
