Turkish war planes or drones today at around 12 pm have carried out airstrikes targeting a civilian vehicle in the old market area of the Yazidi city of Sinjar, in northern Iraq, according to ANF. Fatalities and casualties have been reported.
In the attack where the vehicle was targeted, two people lost their lives and one was wounded, according to Roj News.
Citizens rushed to the scene and reacted to the attack as women were recorded on video crying and singing mournful laments.
In the video some black plastic bags are seen in front of a group of mourning women, local sources told Medya News that these bags contained some of the “body parts” of those who were inside the car and killed during the attack.
The attack took place shortly before Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi’s planned visit, who was expected to arrive in Sinjar today, Roj News noted.
“I am at the market of Sinjar. Turkish war planes have bombed here, they hit the car you see here. There are martyrs and wounded here,” said a citizen recording the bombed car at the scene speaking in Kurdish in a video published by Roj News.
“Right now, Iraqi soldiers are here as well. We do not know who owned the car or why this car was chosen as a target. But it is the war planes of the invading Turkish army that is responsible for the attack,” the young man recording the video was heard saying.
On 30 June, Turkish unmanned drone missile strikes were carried out nearby against a Yazidi camp called Serdeşt camp on Mount Sinjar.
