ALEPPO, Syria (North Press) – On Tuesday, a woman was wounded in Turkish artillery shelling of a village in the vicinity of Aleppo northern countryside.

An eyewitness told North Press that the Turkish artillery targeted the outskirts of the village of Tel Qarah in the northern countryside of Aleppo Governorate, north Syria, with two shells.

As a result, a state of Panic prevailed among residents of the village.

On Monday midnight, a woman was wounded in the village of Mayasah, affiliated with Sherawa district in the northern countryside of Aleppo, in Turkish bombardment that hit the village.

An eyewitness told North Press that the Turkish artillery targeted the aforementioned village with several shells, wounding the 30-year-old woman Zalokh Hamsho in addition to reporting material losses in residents’ possessions.

On the same day, a Turkish drone targeted a railway near a post of Military Security Branch of Syrian government forces in the town of Tel Rifaat.

Following the attack, a Russian patrol and officers of the government forces inspected the area targeted by the Turkish drone.

Villages and towns in Aleppo northern countryside are subjected to daily shelling by Turkish forces and their affiliated Syrian opposition factions, also known as Syrian National Army (SNA).

The daily shelling coincides with ongoing Turkish threats to launch a new military operation against Syrian territory.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has recently announced plans to carry out another major military cross-border incursion into northern Syria. Erdogan specified his targets in the two northern Syrian cities of Manbij and Tel Rifaat.

On July 1, Erdogan said that Ankara’s new military operation in northern Syria could begin at any moment.

“I always say that we can start [the incursion] at any moment at night. We should not worry and rush, especially since we are working in the area,” Erdogan told reporters after returning from the NATO summit in Madrid.
