SOHR sources say that Turkish soldiers in the town of Benish in Idlib countryside opened fire last night from a Turkish post on a civilian car in the agricultural land of the town, seriously injuring a person and was taken to Bab al-Hawa hospital for treatment.

According to local sources, the young man went to his land adjacent to the Turkish post and shot at thieves who were stealing his agricultural equipment, then Turkish forces opened fire on him after they thought they were being targeted.

Turkish forces were preventing him from reaching his land due to the proximity of the Turkish post, which prompted him to open fire on them in order to express his anger.
