In addition, Turkish forces opened heavy machinegun fire on Tel al-Laban village in Tel Tamr countryside, but no casualties have been reported.
On August 26, SOHR sources reported that a Turkish drone struck a van carrying correspondents of a local Kurdish TV channel on the road to Tel Tamr in al-Hasakah countryside, which caused material damage only.
According to sources, a group of correspondents and journalists working for Sterk TV were heading to conflict zones, before they returned back when they were targeted by the Turkish drone.
This incident came in light of the Turkish drones’ escalating attacks on civilians, military personnel and press and media activists.
