Following from the 20 civilians killed and 50 wounded by Turkish airstrikes and artillery in Jeb el-Kussa, located 14 kilometers south of Jarabulus, more civilians have been targeted by Turkish airstrikes.

Al-Amarnah just taken by the Free Syrian Army and Turkey-backed Islamist proxies from Syrian Democratic Forces and YPG militants was the site of the Turkish airstrikes earlier in the day.

It has been reported that 15 civilians were killed and 25 wounded, many of those seriously.

This is the fifth day of Turkey’s Euphrates Shield Operation where so far today atleast 35 civilians have been killed and yesterday 1 Turkish soldier.

The Operation aims to expel YPG militants and ISIS from border areas west of the Euphrates.

Similiar thing happened in Iraq. In addition YPG have had enough time to retreat as their “imperialist” ally (US) ordered. Just notice how light Syria and Russia protested the movement. Russia is lifting some of the economical… Read more »

Turkey explained the aim of the operation and that is clean up jarablus from all the terrorists which are ISIS, YPG/YPD. The civilians that are mentioned are terrorists not civilians. You are a journalist and this is your responsibility to give correct info. right?
