Turkish shelling of Syria’s Ain Issa claims life of individual

QAMISHLI, Syria (North Press) – On Friday, an individual lost his life in Turkish shelling of the countryside of the town of Ain Issa in the northern countryside of Raqqa, north Syria.

Media Center of the Internal Security Forces of North and East Syria (Asayish) said, “38-year-old Bashar Rajab al-Nazhan lost his life in the Turkish shelling on Friday afternoon.”

The center added that the shelling took place nearby the village of al-Khaldiya in Ain Issa that is situated on M4 Highway.

It noted, “The ongoing Turkish shelling of our areas targets safety and security of the citizens, violating all international norms, lows and treaties.”

Following the Turkish incursion in October 2019, Turkey signed two ceasefire agreements, one with Russia and the other with the US stipulating ceasing all hostilities and the withdrawal of the SDF 32 km away from the Turkish border.

The SDF did withdrew from the border areas according to the agreement, but Turkey continues targeting the area.
