BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – The Turkish Armed Forces carried out several attacks inside the Afrin region of Aleppo on Monday, targeting a number of sites currently under the control of the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG).

In particular, Turkish artillery units relentlessly targeted Afrin city, inflicting heavy damage on residential buildings.

According to pro-YPG activists, the Turkish artillery strikes hit crowded streets in the city-center of Afrin, marking the first time since their invasion that they have targeted this area.

Syria’s Al-Ikhbariya TV reported that at least three civilians were killed and five more were wounded as a result of this attack.

Below is a video from RT; it shows Turkish shells nearly hitting their camera crew in Afrin:

In a drive for ethnic cleansings the Turkish artillery units relentlessly targeted Afrin city, inflicting heavy damage on residential buildings to frighten away the local population.

p.s. That is Turkish tactic for hundreds of years only that in older times it was done by done by their ghazi. Want historical examples?

I don’t understand why would anyone call for the assad terrorist regime for help and support. The kurdish people should stop dreaming of independence and join the reset of Arabs and Turkmen to build a free, strong country.

It’s high time for the international community to consider solving the Erdogan/AKP problem.
We can’t let another Turkish-made genocide happening!
