Two children drown in Al-Assi river near the border with Iskenderun region

Idlib Province: SOHR sources have reported that rescue teams retrieved the body of a child who drowned in Al-Assi river near  Hayr Jamous village in Salqin on the Syria border with Iskenderun region in northern Idlib. This child drowned in the river with a second child after being detected by the Turkish Jandarma while they were trying to enter Turkey.

Meanwhile, the search for the second child is in progress.

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 493 including 90 children under the age of eighteen and 45 females over the age of eighteen.

On December 7, SOHR activists documented that a civilian from Kafr Darian town, north of Idlib, was shot dead by Turkish Border Guard Forces “Jandarma” while attempting to cross into Turkish border‎.
This incident coincided with Turkish border guards’ ongoing crimes against Syrians fleeing from the horrors of war to prevent them from sneaking into Turkish territory by the most horrific methods along the entire border strip.
