Turkish army shelling Kurdish militia positions in Aleppo province
At least two civilians were reportedly killed and several more injured in the village of Maryamayn in northern Syria, as the Turkish army shelled Kurdish militia positions in Aleppo province for the second day in a row on Sunday.
A video released by the Syrian Kurdish news agency ANHA and obtained by Ruptly shows damaged buildings and people rushing to take care of the wounded in the village of Maryamayn near the town of Afrin after reportedly undergoing a Turkish artillery attack.
Ruptly reported that at least two civilians had been killed and several injured.
Turkish military sources told Anadolu Agency that the shelling continued on Sunday, destroying several positions of YPG – the military wing of the Kurdish Democratic Union (PYD). The militias reportedly suffered a number of casualties, the sources added.
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told German Chancellor Angela Merkel by phone on Sunday that Turkey’s military will continue to respond to attacks by Kurdish YPG militia in northern Syria, sources in Davutoglu’s office told Reuters.
Washington and Paris have already called on Turkey to cease its shelling of Kurdish targets in Syria.
