Turkish shelling on north Syria’s Tel Abyad injures a civilian

TEL ABYAD, Syria (North Press) – On Tuesday, a civilian was injured by shelling of Turkish forces and the affiliated armed opposition factions on the western countryside of Tel Abyad, north of Raqqa, north Syria.

The villages of Arida, Umm al-Huwaish, Sweida, Zenobia and Sawan in the western countryside of Tel Abyad were bombed with missiles, North Press reported a source from the western countryside of Tel Abyad.

“The indiscriminate shelling has begun since eight in the evening, causing casualties among civilians and damage to the homes of the residents of the mentioned villages,” the source said.

“Dozens of shells have fallen on those villages,” the sources added.

The town of Ain Issa and the western villages of Tel Abyad and other areas in north Syria are repeatedly bombed by the Turkish forces and the affiliated opposition factions.

Turkish forces and the Turkish-backed factions have been running the city of Tel Abyad and parts of its countryside since October 2019, after a military operation named “Peace Spring”.

Those areas run by the factions and supervised by Turkish military security authorities are witnessing broad-scale violations and attempts at Turkification, according to international and local reports.
