The occupying Turkish army, alongside mercenary forces, has intensified bombardments in Girê Spi and the surrounding area this month, with heavy shelling in the villages of Bir Khatik, Abdak, Qazali, Arida, Kour Hassan and Saleeb.
According to Shervin Mostafa at the Hawar News Agency, the occupation army also continued to shell the vicinity of the Ain Issa district, its camp, the village of Sidon in its north, and the M4 international road.
Until 12 November, the populated villages of Qazali, Arida, Kour Hassan and Saleeb were heavily shelled, wounding a member of the Syrian government forces.
There are now eight Turkish military bases in the nearby village of Shirkrak and many mercenary bases. From these bases, the homes and properties of civilians are directly targeted. Shelling has been constant since October, on the anniversary of Turkey’s occupation of the region.
There is also evidence of government agents “sowing discord”, according to Hawar News. Security forces in the Ain Issa district arrested a three-person intelligence cell linked to the Damascus government. The cell members confessed that their mission was to “sow discord and create a state of dissatisfaction among the people against the projects of the Autonomous Administration”.
They also transferred information about the sites and military movements of the Syrian Democratic Forces for the benefit of the security branches in Hama and Damascus, according to the security forces in the Ain Issa district.
Despite ceasefire agreements amid the coronavirus pandemic, other countries have remained silent on the attacks.
