Turkey continues its attacks against the autonomous region of northern and eastern Syria unabated, targeting not only vital supply facilities, but also civilian settlement areas.

The military violence of the Turkish army and its jihadist allies against the autonomous region of North and East Syria continues.

According to reports from the ground, the occupying Turkish state shelled the village of Deşîşe in Til Temir on Saturday. The house of a villager named Ebduselam El Mela was hit and 2 children and a woman were wounded.

Muna Ebduselam Mihemed (10), Kemal Ebduselam Mihemed (16) and Nûriye Mihemed El Hisên (40) were taken under treatment at Til Temir Hospital.

Til Temir is a good 30 kilometres from the Turkish border and borders in the north on the illegal occupation zone that Turkey is running along its southern border in solidarity with jihadists in Rojava. Since 2019, the Christian-majority district has been in the aggressors’ crosshairs as part of a war of attrition, with periods of high intensity alternating with periods of low intensity. Over thirty villages have since been either occupied, depopulated or extensively destroyed. Almost as many villages lie directly on the front line – and thus in the permanent sights of the occupying forces.

The constant incursions by Turkey and its Islamist allies constitute violations of the ceasefire and de-escalation agreements concluded between the guarantor powers Russia and the USA with Turkey after the occupation of Serêkaniyê (Ras al-Ain) and Girê Spî (Tal Abyad) in October 2019. Both Moscow and Washington nevertheless give Turkey a free hand. Other regions of the AANES are also permanently targeted by the Turkish military, which, however, remains largely unnoticed.
