Turkish drone attack wounds three in Syria’s Derik

DERIK, Syria (North Press) – On Tuesday, a Turkish drone targeted two cars near the village of Khana Sere, southeast of Derik, in the far northeast Syria.

As a result, the two cars were fully burnt, and three individuals were wounded.

The wounded were transferred to the Martyr Khabat Hospital in Qamishli. No further details about the extent of damage were reported.

The recent Turkish drone attack coincides with ongoing Turkish attacks on the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES)-run areas, amid threats to launch a new military operation on the region.

On May 25, Turkey’s National Security Council said that Turkey’s “existing and future military operations along its southern borders were necessary for the country’s security.” In the meeting, Erdogan delivered a speech to the MPs of his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and said, “Turkish military would continue to rid its neighbor of terrorists” refers to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

On June 1, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan renewed his threats of launching a military operation on northern Syria.

On June 27, a Turkish drone bombed the village of Tel al-Laban, west of the town of Tel Tamr, north of Hasakah, wounding an individual.
