New reports of military attacks are reported from Afrin, which has been under the occupation of Turkey and affiliated local mercenaries since 2018.
Around 3am on Thursday, the first day of Eid al-Fitr, the Turkish army reportedly hit Şerawa, a district in Afrin with artillery fire.
The Turkish army and local jihadis groups backed by Turkey have not only been attacking a number of districts of Afrin with artillery fire, but also preventing local residents from returning to their homes.
During the early hours of Thursday, villages of Meyasê, Klutê, Birc Qasê in Şerawa have been under artillery fire.
It is reported that due to the attacks, the residential areas have been seriously damaged.
Yazidis, who were displaced from the Baflun village, located in the Sharra district of Afrin, were reportedly not allowed to go back to their villages by the Turkish soldiers and affiliated mercenaries operating with them.
30 families who were displaced from their communities after Afrin was occupied reportedly tried to go back to their hometowns in Afrin, but the jihadist groups known as El-Cebhe and El-Shamiye have prevented these families return, according to Medya Haber TV.
Syria-Afrin Human Rights Association spokesperson İbrahim Şêxo shared information that when Yazidis living in the region visited their families graves for the holy feast of Çarşema Sor they discovered their loved ones graves were desecrated and demolished.
“The gangs turned the homes of the families to military bases. The demographics of the region has been completely changed. 70 families brought from Gulf countries were placed in El-Teawin camp. All atrocities in the region have been organised by the National Intelligence Organisation (MIT) of the Turkish state,” Şexo said.
