With incendiary bullets | Factions affiliated to National Army set fire on agricultural land in areas controlled by Kurdish forces, north of Aleppo

Aleppo province: The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights activists have reported that fires broke out in agricultural crops on the outskirts of the village of Um Hawash, in areas controlled by Kurdish forces in the north of Aleppo, after the crops were targeted by incendiary bullets by members of factions affiliated to the Turkish-backed National Army.

On May 12, SOHR sources reported that members of al-Sham Corps of the National Army set fire to olive fields around Barrad village of Shirawa district in Afrin countryside in northern Aleppo. The arsons have expanded to large spaced on the village’s outskirts, amid fear among the people of neighbouring villages of Mayyas, Burj al-Qas and Kalout, which are under the control of Turkish forces, that the fire may catch their farmlands.

Moreover, Turkish forces shelled the outskirts of Kaloutah and Burj al-Qas villages with heavy artillery, but no casualties were reported.

Yesterday, SOHR activists reported outbreak of fires due to bombardment with heavy artillery by Turkish forces and their proxy factions on the outskirts of Um al-Housh village in Kurdish-controlled areas in northern Aleppo. The fires devoured tens of hectares of farmlands planted with wheat and barley, while the residents could not extinguish these blazes due to the sporadic Turkish bombardment.
