KOBANI, Syria (North Press) – Civilians were injured on Sunday due to Turkish shelling of a village in the eastern countryside of Kobani in northern Syria.

An eyewitness from the village of Qaramogh, 20 km east of Kobani, told North Press that the Turkish forces heavily shelled the village in the morning.

The shelling caused the injury of a number of the villagers. North Press has not managed to get more details.

The shelling started at 7 am using mortars and artilleries, according to the villagers.

Turkish military escalation against Kobani has been on the rise recently in which populated areas have been targeted five times since early 2022, claiming many lives including women and children as well as causing many injuries.
