Turkish attack on Syria’s Kobani claims lives of two SDF fighters – SDF

QAMISHLI, Syria (North press) – On Thursday, Syrian Democratic Forces Media Center released a statement, saying two SDF fighters lost their lives in a Turkish drone attack on Kobani, north Syria.

A Turkish drone targeted, on Wednesday evening, a car that was picking up two SDF fighters west of Kobani.

“While two of our comrades were on their way to visit one of the families, their car was targeted by a Turkish drone,” the statement said.

As a result, “comrades Kendal Rojava and Barkhwadan Kobane” martyred, according to the statement.

As Turkey continues threatening to wage a new military operation against Syria’s north, it continues to launch drone attacks against civilians and military personnel of the SDF and also the Syrian government forces in the region.

On July 19, an officer and a soldier of the Syrian government forces were injured in a Turkish drone attack on their military post in the town of Tel Rifaat, north of Aleppo Governorate.

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.

“The time has come to clear these lands from the terrorist organizations,” Erdogan threatened during Tehran Summit on July 19.

The Tehran’s trilateral summit brought president of Iran Turkey and Russia together with the Syrian issue on the top of its agenda.
