Two SDF fighters killed by Turkish drone strike in Northern Syria
Two fighters of Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were killed by a Turkish drone strike on Tuesday in Northern Syria, according to a report by Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
The drone targeted a position in the village of Tel Tawil near the city of al-Hasakah, leaving two fighters dead and one severely injured, SOHR said.
The attack followed a Turkish drone strike a day earlier on a house in the village of Oka near Tal Tamr in al-Hasakah Governorate. No casualties had been reported after the attack on Monday.
The recent attack was confirmed by Hawar News Agency that did not provide information on casualties.
SDF is the armed force of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES), and part of the US-led international coalition that fights the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria.
Turkish authorities accuse SDF and AANES officials of being affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), designated a "terrorist group" by Ankara, while Turkey is accused by AANES officials of providing support for ISIS.
