The large scale air raids campaign by Turkey on areas across Northern and Eastern #Syria since this weekend show us that these attacks are approved by Russia & the U.S. as #Turkey is using the airspace that is controlled by both the U.S. and Russia #TwitterKurds https://t.co/R7qhX6oXxz— Cahîda Dêrsim (@dersi4m) November 22, 2022
Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said on Monday that a missile attack that targeted a Turkish city bordering Syria resulted in three deaths.
The minister stated that the missiles targeted the Turkish city of Karkamis, killing a child in addition to two others, while six were injured.
Al Mayadeen correspondent stated that Turkish authorities accuse the PKK and the SDF of firing missiles at Turkish territory from northern Syria.
Earlier today, Turkish drones targeted in a first a joint base belonging to the International Coalition and the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the western Al-Hasakah Dam, killing two SDF members and wounding 3 others.
Al Mayadeen's sources confirmed that the bombing targeted the headquarters of the SDF Special Forces a few meters away from the headquarters of the US occupation's base in the Life Stone resort and the residence of the Commander-in-Chief of the SDF, Mazloum Abdi.
The wave of Turkish operations comes without any noticeable ground movements so far, despite previous hints made by Turkish President Recep Erdogan that the "Claw-Sword" air operation will not remain confined to airstrikes and that Turkey is currently studying the number of forces that may participate in a ground operation, with Turkish media leaks suggesting that preparation for the ground invasion had already started, and the issue of its official launch is just a matter of time.
