Escalation in Turkish bombings on northern Syria

Escalation in Turkish bombings on northern Syria

Damascus, Oct 28 (Prensa Latina) The Turkish army and the extremist groups operating under its command in Syria escalated their attacks against localities under government control in the north of Aleppo Governorate, 450 kilometers north of Damascus.

Ankara’s soldiers bombed with dozens of artillery shells and rockets the localities of Nubol, al-Zahraa, Hayan, Heraytan and Meneg, activists quoted by Al-Watan informed.

These hostile actions come a few hours after popular demonstrations in rejection of the Turkish army’s threats to launch an offensive in northern Syria.

Turkey reinforced during the last few days its military positions in this nation with hundreds of armored vehicles and trucks loaded with logistic equipment, ammunition, weapons and cement blocks.

On Tuesday, Ankara’s Parliament extended the mandate authorizing the armed forces’ operations in northern Iraq and Syria, until October 2023.

Turkey has illegally controlled large areas in northern Syria since 2018 and has maintained 114 military posts and points, which are distributed in five provinces: Aleppo (56), Idlib (45), Raqa (nine), Hasakeh (four) and Latakia (two).
