Turkish attack kills 4 fighters and injures 2 others in Manbij

Deadly Turkish attacks on North and East Syria (AANES) continue unabated, claiming more lives every day.

The Press Office of Manbij Military Council (MMC) released a statement providing information about a deadly aerial attack by the Turkish state.

According to the statement, fighters of the Manbij Military Council were targeted by an UCAV (Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle) attack by the Turkish state while on their way to the village of Dendeiyê, northwest of Manbij.

MMC fighters were set to rescue two children who had been injured in an attack on the village, which has been under artillery fire since early this morning. The attack claimed the lives of 4 fighters and left 2 others injured.

On the other hand, another UCAV attack on a house in the village of Ereb Hesen claimed the life of a civilian.

The autonomous region of northern and eastern Syria is attacked by Turkey every day. Manbij was named by Turkish head of state Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in 2022, along with Tel Rifat, as the first target for a new war of aggression against the region. According to the wishes of the Turkish government, both cities are to become bridgeheads for the invasion of a 30-kilometre-wide strip along the Turkish-Syrian border.
