Turkish shelling on Syria’s Tel Rifaat injures Afrin IDPs

ALEPPO COUNTRYSIDE, Syria (North Press) – On Sunday, four people, including a child, were injured in a Turkish drone strike on the town of Tel Rifaat in the northern countryside of Aleppo.

A Turkish drone targeted IDPs who had gone out because of the high temperature degrees in the Tel Rifaat town, a source from the town told North press.

The child’s condition was unstable and was taken to Avrin Hospital in the town of Fafin, while the others’ injuries were mild, a medical source from the town said.

The town of Tel Rifaat has had hundreds of IDP families from Afrin region since the Turkish forces and the affiliated armed factions controlled the city in 2018.

The region is continually bombed by the Turkish forces and the armed factions stationed in the vicinity of the region in the northern countryside of Aleppo.

In 2019, the Turkish forces and the affiliated armed factions bombed the town of Tel Rifaat with missiles, which led to the killing of ten people, including eight children and the injury of some others.
