SOHR: 2 civilians injured in Turkish drone strike on Syria’s Manbij
Two civilians in the northwestern Syrian city of Manbij were injured on Tuesday by a Turkish drone strike.
The civilians were injured when a Turkish “suicide” drone targeted the village of al-Hoshariya northeast of Manbij city, the local North Press agency reported on Wednesday.
“Ali al-Taha, who hails from al-Jat village, sustained a shrapnel injury in his right foot while he was selling vegetables in al-Hoshariya village, due to the explosion of the drone near him,” said his brother. “He is now in a good health condition and he returned home.”
According to North Press, the drone was launched from a Turkish base overlooking the targeted village.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) war monitor reported that a drone targeted Al-Jat village northeast of Manbij city “with several bombs, injuring two civilians.”
