The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) has submitted a comprehensive dossier to several international bodies highlighting extensive damage and casualties caused by the Turkish forces’ recent military actions.
According to the comprehensive report by Syria’s Kurdish-led de facto Autonomous Administration, Turkey’s recent military campaign, which included a barrage of airstrikes and ground attacks, mainly targeted service facilities, vital infrastructure and power plants in the region. The Autonomous Administration’s statistics, supported by photographic evidence, highlight the grave consequences of these actions, the Hawar News Agency (ANHA) reported.
The report reveals that the Turkish army carried out a total of 304 air and ground strikes between 4 and 10 October, hitting 224 locations in northern and eastern Syria. These attacks consisted of 221 artillery, heavy weapons and mortar attacks, as well as 83 military aircraft and drone sorties. These offensives caused severe damage to power plants, oil facilities, medical clinics, industrial areas and financial centres.
In addition, the vicinity of the Washukani and Roj camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) and dozens of villages were targeted, causing significant material damage.
The human toll was devastating, with 47 people killed, including five from Kobani (Kobane), and a further 55 injured. The financial cost of this aggression is staggering, with losses estimated at $56 million and rising.
