Kurdish officials on Monday accused the Turkish army of shelling the villages of Maranaaz, Vilat al-Qadi, Sheikh Issa east of Afrin district and entering Syrian territory, ARA News reported.
Turkish media also confirmed the shelling.
“Turkish army and affiliated terrorists are heavily shelling east Afrin from Azaz city since Monday evening — the attacks continued until the moment,” the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) said in a statement.
The relatively peaceful Afrin province has been immune mostly from the war, however, this latest Turkish bombardment threatens to bring war to the region.
