Turkish forces have continued to attack North and East Syria and have been preventing the passage of earthquake aid since the devastating twin earthquakes on 6 February, Hawar News Agency reported.
Although the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) stopped operations after the earthquakes, Farhad Shami, spokesman of the SDF said on Saturday that the Turkish aggression against Kurds still continues.
Shami argued that Turkey took advantage of the SDF’s decision to stop its military operations, noting that Turkish forces launched 18 ground attacks and two air strikes on the region within 18 days.
The spokesman added that the timid position of international forces in the region has given the Turkish state more audacity to continue its attacks.
These attacks resulted in the death of two citizens, including a 70-year-old, and the injury of many others.
Noting that Turkey sought to exploit the humanitarian calls of regional and international powers to serve the war, Shami also stressed that preventing the response to rescue people from under the rubble was a crime according to international and social laws.
