As Turkey’s Operation Peace Spring, which aims to clear terrorist elements from its borders to protect national security and ensure the return of Syrian refugees, continues a week in, the PKK terror group’s Syrian branch - the People’s Protection Units (YPG) - continues to attack civilians and residential places.
Since the launch of the operation on Oct. 9, attacks by the terrorist group have gained new momentum, making life unlivable for the locals in the region.
Six civilians were killed and 15 injured by YPG artillery fire and heat-seeking missiles in residential areas in northern Syria which were once occupied by Daesh terrorists and then cleared by Turkey's anti-terror Operation Euphrates Shield. Terrorists targeted the Gandura neighborhood of the Jarablus district, held by Syrian armed opposition forces. Six civilians were killed in the attack, with 13 injured. The YPG terrorists also attacked Azaz province, firing four artillery shells which wounded two additional civilians.
On Monday, the terrorist group also injured three children in a separate attack on Jarablus, located in the Operation Euphrates Shield zone.
Education was suspended for two days in the northern Syrian town of Jarablus, held by the Syrian armed opposition, due to attacks from the YPG terrorist group.
In addition to civilians, soldiers were also targeted. A Turkish soldier was killed and eight others injured on Tuesday, the Defense Ministry announced.
