A terrorist attack by the PKK’s Syrian offshoot, the YPG, killed at least four people, including three members of the Syrian Civil Defense (White Helmets) in the northern Syrian town of Jarablus.
The terrorists carried out a rocket attack targeting the White Helmets’ vehicle, which was in the area for a rescue operation following the YPG/PKK’s terrorist attacks west of the Euphrates River.
A civilian and three members of the White Helmets were killed and the vehicle was destroyed in the attack, according to reports.
The White Helmets have been credited with saving thousands of people in opposition-held areas during years of bombing by the Assad regime and Russian forces in the country’s civil war.
Jarablus was liberated from Daesh/ISIS terrorists by Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield in September 2016. Turkey also launched Olive Branch in 2018 and Peace Spring in 2019 to prevent the formation of a terrorism corridor and enable the peaceful settlement of locals.
Syria’s war has killed more than 387,000 people and displaced millions since starting in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-regime protests.
