A vehicle has been targeted allegedly by a Turkish drone near the city of Kobani in Northern Syria that was hit by the earthquake on 6 February, which left thousands dead.

Militants affiliated with the Islamic State (ISIS) killed a Syrian troop on Friday in a raid on his house in a town east of Deir ez-Zor, North Press Agency said.

The militants were disguised in the government forces' uniform, a military source said, adding that they fatally shot the soldier in front of his family.

On Friday evening, four members of the Turkish-backed Sultan Suleiman Shah Division were killed by unidentified gunmen in the countryside of al-Bab, a city east of Aleppo, which has been under the control of Turkish military and its proxy "Syrian National Army" since 2017.

In another incident, a vehicle was targeted near the Kurdish-majority city of Kobani in Northern Syria on Sunday, allegedly by a Turkish drone, Hawar News Agency (ANHA) reported.

The attack took place on the road linking Kobani to the village of Menaz, and no information on casualties has yet been available, ANHA said.

Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) confirmed the incident, saying that a Turkish drone attacked a military vehicle carrying people affiliated with Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), and that a person was killed by the attack.
