Türkiye resumes shelling of Syrian town

Türkiye resumes shelling of Syrian town

Damascus, Dec 1 (Prensa Latina) The Turkish army resumed its bombardments against the Syrian city of Abu Raseen, in the province of Hasakeh and near the common border, activists reported.

The attacks in recent hours employing heavy artillery caused damage to homes and properties.

The town is almost empty of its inhabitants, who were forced to evacuate due to the continuous bombardments during the last two years.

Last Sunday, Türkiye launched an air operation called Claw-Sword against Kurdish militias in the Syrian provinces of Aleppo, Raqa and Hasakeh in response to the terrorist attack in Istanbul on November 13th, which killed six people and injured 81.

According to the Turkish Interior Minister, Suleyman Soylu, the order to carry out the attack came from the city of Kobane, a stronghold of Kurdish forces in northern Syria. Ankara labels the so-called SDF as terrorists, and under the pretext of eliminating this formation, the Turkish military and illegal armed factions have been controlling large areas in the provinces of Idlib, Aleppo, Raqa and Hasakeh since 2018.
