Turkish UCAV attacks claim the lives of three Syriac Military Council fighters in Derik

The Turkish state continues its genocidal attacks against North-East Syria where it has already invaded territories in violation of international law.

The occupying Turkish state carried out attacks against four cars at various locations in the region of Dêrik in the Cizir Canton in North and East Syria today. The attacks were carried out at the entrance of the city of Dêrik, the town of Xana Serî and the village of Wanikê.

The Syriac Military Council reported in a statement on Wednesday that 3 fighters of the Sotoro Forces were martyred as a result of these attacks with UCAVs (Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle).

The fallen fighters were named as Şerbêl Neîm Salîba, Cemîl Hena Hena and Mizefar Mihemed Mihemed.

The Military Council announced that fighters Corc Şîmo Yuhena and Danî Semîr Xelef were wounded in the attacks.

For eleven years now, the Christian population in North and East Syria has been defended by the Syriac Military Council (MFS), which was founded on 8 January 2013. Two and a half years later, on 30 August 2015, the HSNB also launched the autonomous women's defense forces in Bethnahrin - Aramaic for the land between the Euphrates and the Tigris. Both associations belong to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and have defended Christian-populated villages in the Khabur Valley against the Islamic State. Today, especially around Til Temir, they are resisting Turkey and its Islamist militias.
