A Turkish drone targeted a car in northeast Syria on Sunday, killing two members of the Asayish (internal security forces) of the Kurdish-led Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria.
According to a statement by the Asayish, after the first drone strike, which hit one of their vehicles on the road between the towns of Amuda and Qamishli (Qamişlo) killing two of their number, the drone, which was controlled by Turkey, then targeted people in the vicinity who were trying to provide first aid, wounding a total of eight people.
Turkey has recently stepped up its attacks on Kurdish forces in Syria. On Friday, three fighters from the Women’s Protection Units (YPJ), affiliated to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), were killed in Manbij (Minbîj) in a Turkish attack.
The Asayish described the attacks as ‘inhumane’, while the YPJ accused Turkey of violating international law.
In a press release on Sunday, women’s organisations in the region called on the international community to condemn Turkey’s recent attacks, both on civilians and on military personnel.
