Four, including two children, killed by drone strike in north Syria
Four people, including two children, were killed by a Turkish done strike in the northeastern Syrian city of Qamisli on Saturday, UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported citing local sources.
The attack was confirmed by the Internal Security Forces of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES), who said that a vehicle was targeted around 4 PM local time by a Turkish armed drone in the Sinaa neighborhood, killing four and injuring two.
Buildings in the vicinity were damaged by the explosion.
AANES Internal Security Forces said in a statement:
"We reiterate that the silence of the international community in the face of such attacks is one of the reasons that Turkish forces continue to conduct these airstrikes."
Qamisli is a Kurdish-majority city in northeast Syria on the Syrian–Turkish border, adjoining the city of Nusaybin in Turkey, with significant communities of Arabs, Assyrians and Armenians. The city had served as the de facto capital of the AANES until it was moved to Ayn Issa.
