Turkish aggression against Kurds continues taking further lives in northern Syria amid the human tragedy caused by the earthquakes in both countries, as a Turkish drone attacked a civilian car in Qamishli on Wednesday, killing one and injuring another.
A local source told North Press on Wednesday that a white car exploded in the eastern countryside of Qamishli city after it was “most likely targeted by a Turkish drone.”
Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Commander in Chief Mazloum Abdi confirmed that a Turkish drone attack on the vehicle has caused the death of a civilian and wounded a member of the Internal Security Forces of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES).
While all the international efforts are directed towards sending humanitarian aid to the Syrian and Turkish people who are facing a human tragedy in the earthquake-hit areas, “the Turkish regime continues its aggressive actions against the Kurdish people, using flimsy pretexts,” Abdi said.
On 10 February, the United Nations Human Rights Chief Volker Türk called for an immediate ceasefire in Syria and respect of humanitarian law obligations so help can reach everyone, after the 6 February quakes that killed nearly 50,000 people and rendered millions homeless in both Turkey and Syria.
With disregard to international calls and rescue efforts racing against time in Turkey’s southeastern provinces and the north of Syria, a Turkish drone carried out an attack in Tel Rifaat in the northern countryside of Aleppo city in Syria on 11 February.
The drone attack targeted a bazaar yard where the IDPs (internally displaced people) from Aleppo were taking shelter after the earthquake disaster, killing a 70-year-old civilian and wounding a 50-year-old.
