Turkish drone bombed a camp and SDF headquarters, in the countryside of the city of Amuda, north of Hasakah, killing and injuring at least 12 SDF militants.

After the Airs strike, the SDF forces imposed a security and military cordon on the target site, which is close to the Syrian-Turkish border, in the village of Khirbet al Malah in the countryside of the city of Amuda which is considered the headquarters of the SDF’s military leadership in the north east of Syria.

According to a statement issued by the Kurdish administration in northeastern Syria, Türkiye carried out a drone attack near the border with Türkiye, killing four members of the Syria Democratic Forces.

Ankara classify the Kurdish YPG militia, which dominates the SDF, as an offshoot of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which is waging an insurgency against it and which Türkiye and its Western allies classify as a terrorist group.

With this new Turkish air targeting, the number of air strikes carried out by Turkish Air Force drones on areas controlled by the US-backed SDF in north and northeastern Syria has risen to 30, since the beginning of 2023, killing 60, including leaders of foreign nationalities, and wounding dozens of SDF militants.
