Turkey’s attacks on North and East Syria killed 13 civilians between Sunday and Tuesday, according to Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) Executive Committee President Ilham Ahmad.
Another 14 civilians were injured in air strikes, Ahmad said, as Turkey targeted key civilian infrastructure in the Kurdish-held region.
The operation “will have catastrophic consequences on the situation in Syria”, she continued, warning of expanding conflict hotbeds and collapsing ceasefire agreements.
Turkish Armed Forces have been shelling rural Aleppo, as well as the Damascus government’s positions in the area.
Ahmad called on Russia and the United States, as guarantor of the ceasefire in the region and the SDC’s partner respectively, to “deter Turkey and stop its attacks”.
In earlier tweets in Turkish, Ahmad said Turkey was “squandering its resources for an adventure of war while inflation remains 85 percent”.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan “invests in war and collapses Turkey’s economy, for the sake of elections”, she added. “Peoples of Turkey should rise up against the war.”
