A Turkish drone strike on 27 September killed two co-chairs of a justice and reform office of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES), Rojava Information Centre reported.
The drone hit a car on the road near Girkê Legê, across the border from Turkey’s Şırnak (Şirnêx) province. According to the RIC, the attack was the 81st drone strike in 2022.
Zeyneb Mihemed and Yılmaz Şero were co-chairs in the AANES justice bureau for northern Syria’s Cizire region, according to the ANF.
On Wednesday, Turkish forces and their Syrian affiliates targeted four villages in the countryside in Zirgan. Two civilians were killed and five injured in the shelling of al-Mushayrfa, Khadrawi, al-Bobi, Dada Abdal and al-Asadiya villages, a military source told North Press.
According to the RIC, the two civilians who were killed were both 12 years old, while 3 and 13 year old minors were among the injured civilians.
“This was an explicit attack on key civilian workers in AANES’s political structures,” RIC said.
