Turkish Jandarma crimes | 28 Syrian people killed since early 2021, as “Erdogan” brags about aiding Syrian refugees

At a time when the Turkish president “Erdogan” promotes himself by “aiding the Syrian people and refugees”, the Turkish Border Guard Forces “Jandarma” continue killing and assaulting Syrian civilians who attempt crossing into Turkish territory, fleeing from military operations in Syria.

 

SOHR activists have documented the death of a young man from Namer town in Daraa province affected by the injury he had yesterday when he was shot by the Turkish Jandarma, while he was attempting to cross into Turkey from north Idlib countryside. The man had been taken to al-Rayhaneya hospital in Iskenderun region “Hatai”, before he died today affected by his injuries.

 

According to Syrian Observatory statistics, the number of Syrians who were killed by the Turkish Jandarma since the early September, has risen to four, and they were as follows:

 

  • Two men, one of which was from Buqrus and the other was from al-Shamiteya in Deir Ezzor province, who were shot dead by the Turkish Border Guard Forces, while attempting to sneak into Turkish territory from north-east Syria.

 

  • A young man from “al-Na’eem” tribe in al-Hasakah province who died affected by the injury he had on September 20, when he was shot by the Turkish Jandarma, while he was attempting to cross into Turkey from Ras al-Ain countryside (Sri Kaniye).

 

  • A young man from Namer town in Daraa province died when he was shot by the Turkish Jandarma, while he was attempting to cross into Turkey from north Idlib countryside.

 

Accordingly, the Turkish Jandarma have shot 26 civilians dead, including a woman and six children, in Idlib and al-Hasakah since early 2021, as they were attempting to cross into Turkish territory.

 

According to Syrian Observatory statistics, the number of Syrian civilians who have been killed by the Turkish Jandarma since the beginning of the Syrian Revolution, has risen to 487 including 88 children under the age of eighteen and 45 females over the age of eighteen.
