Turkey’s “safe zone” | Two Turkish proxies killed in protests against “local councils and electricity companies” in Afrin

SOHR activists have reported that a member of “Jayish Al-Sharqyyiah” faction died of wounds he sustained yesterday evening, by “police” bullets as they tried to disperse a demonstration against the Turkish electricity company in Jendiries in Afrin countryside, north-west of Aleppo.

It is worth noting that the dead man is from Deir Ezzor and is a fighter in “Jayish Al-Sarqqiyah” faction. The fighter did not carry weapons during the demonstration.

Ankara-backed faction member was also found burned and shot dead inside the local council building in Afrin, during protests against the Turkish electricity company and after some protesters burned and vandalised the Turkish government-backed local council.

Yesterday, SOHR activists reported that members of the police shot a protester while they were trying to disperse protests against Turkish electricity companies in Jinderes area in Afrin countryside north-western of Aleppo, injuring him.

It is worth noting that the injured protestor was displaced from Deir Ezzor and a member of Jaish Al-Sharqiyah faction, however, he didn’t carry a weapon during the protests. Jinderes is witnessing an alert among Jaish Al-Sharqiyah faction amid public fears of armed clashes.

Meanwhile, Al-Bab city eastern of Aleppo witnessed protests against the Turkish electricity company, and protestors in Marae’ city northern of Aleppo set the headquarters of the Local Council on fire, in light of ongoing public protests chanting “Syria is free country… Turkish people should leave

It is worth noting that the electricity in areas held by Turkish forces and their proxies is provided by “STE” and “AK energy” Turkish companies.

SOHR activists have just reported that public protests expanded to include other areas held by Turkish forces and their proxies in Aleppo countryside, where people protested in Marae’, Soran, A’zaz and Jinderes against the Turkish electricity comany, while protestors in Marae’ broke into the company and set it on fire.

SOHR activists monitored high tension in Afrin, where the Governor’s headquarters guard and military police opened fire to seperate protestors, amid confirmed reports of the injury of two civilians.

Earlier yesterday, SOHR activists monitored a sit in by residents in Afrin, which is controlled by Turkish forces and their proxies north western of Aleppo, in front of the Turkish company “STE”, following the violations and the repeated cutting of power for technical faults, where the protestors broke into the building and sabotaged and destroyed its contents.
