Aleppo province: SOHR sources have reported a spike in the number of deaths in strikes by a Turkish drone on a car in Ain al-Arab city (Kobani), as five people, including two Kurdistani officials, were killed. The death toll is expected to rise further as the attack left several persons injured, some seriously.
Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that a Turkish drone targeted a car in Ain al-Arab (Kubani) in east Aleppo countryside. According to SOHR activists, the attack killed two military men who were in a car in the new district in Ain al-Arab.
Later, a military force cordoned off the targeted area and prevented any persons from approaching. SOHR have reported that Turkey was willing to launch qualitative operations on the Syrian lands following a Russian approval.
On Oct. 14, SOHR activists witness state of alert across the areas under control of the Autonomous Administration in north and northeast Syria amid escalation of Turkish threats and the Russian green light for anticipated Turkish targeting on those areas.
It is likely that Turkish threats, if implemented, will be air attacks by Turkish drones, on any place suspected of hosting PKK and its leaders or other members of the SDF.
On the other hand, the SDF leadership announced instructions for its members a day earlier to prevent them from leaving their headquarters in Deri Ezzor, al-Raqqa, al-Shadady and the other areas under its control for three years. All who violates the instructions will be subject to legal military accountability.
According to SOHR activists, the SDF leadership assigned its members to take precautionary measures after receiving information to give Russian green light for the Syrian regime cells and the Turks by targeting the non-Syrian leaders of the SDF.
SOHR activists reported that the Russians press the SDF leaders to make concessions for the Syrian regime. It also allowed the Turkish drones to target foreign leaders of the SDF until Oct. 25 at the border between Syria and Turkey.
