Airwars assessment

One person was killed, and three people were injured when an alleged Syrian Democratic Force or PKK/PYD artillery shell hit a “family” on the bank of the Euphrates River in the city of Jarablus, in the eastern countryside of Aleppo on April 18th 2022. Despite many sources attributing the belligerent to the SDF, the SDF have disputed this.  In reports about the young man that died, it is contested as to whether he was a non-combatant or a militant.

One local source, @zelal_katee reported that the attack was with rocket-propelled grenades.

One person was initially missing, and their body was found hours later.

This event was followed by a strike which injured three Syrian Civil Defense volunteers who was looking for the missing man, reported in assessment YS130. These two incidents (YS129 and YS130) constitute a ‘double strike’ attack.

Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the young man who was killed was ‘a member of a faction loyal to Turkey’, but it is unclear whether he was a non-combatant or not which is reflected in the civilian harm range. @Almohrar1 reported that the young man’s name was Shadi Saleh Al-Mohammed, and he was affiliated with the Turkish National Army, including a photo of him in uniform.

The SDF responded to these reports in a press statement which said “sites and pages belonging to the mercenaries of the Turkish occupation published false news about a hypothetical artillery bombardment attributed to our forces that targeted a car and a number of people in the occupied city of Jarabulus, killing and wounding a number of people, including mercenary soldiers, according to those sources.

We confirm that our forces did not carry out any attack during the last period in the mentioned area, and attributing that attack to our forces aims to cover up the real actor behind which the Turkish occupation intelligence hides. Evidence and field investigations, according to the published photos of the place of targeting and the targeted vehicle, confirm that the attack was carried out by a drone that penetrated the Syrian airspace, and is usually repeated by the Turkish occupation’s drones.”

The local time of the incident is unknown.

كوباني, Kobani, Aleppo, Syria

Airwars assessment

Two civilians were injured in alleged Turkish strikes on the city of Kobani on April 22, 2022.

The New Arab reported that Turkish drones carried out strikes on the city centre of Kobani and a nearby village, injuring two people.

North Press Agency originally put the number of civilians injured at one “slightly injured”, identifying the victim as Muhammad Khalil Bako, the owner of a shop on Street 48 that was bombed. “Bako” told North-Press that he was sitting inside his shop with another person during the fall of the shell. He pointed out that the bombing caused significant material damage in the commercial store.

North Press Agency later added that the civilian injury toll had risen to two, adding that “A shell landed on houses in the Al-Shaheed Kawa neighborhood, south of the city. As a result, Farhad Muhammad Hassan (28 years) was wounded with shrapnel in the leg and back. Farhad Muhammad Hassan said, “A shell fell at ten in the morning on our house, while we were sitting.” He added, I was hit by two shrapnel in my leg and back, and I was taken to hospital. A medical source told North-Press, “The young man’s injury is moderate, and he has been discharged from the hospital, after receiving treatment, and his health condition is currently stable.”

Kurdistan24 quoted Rojava Media Centre, which stated that Turkey’s “bombardment of Kobani city center with howitzers, civilians were injured and shops were burned” without specifying how many civilians were injured. Kurdistan24 also quoted Hawar News Agency, which identified four “artillery shells have hit the city so far,” adding that the shells “fell on 48th Street and Kaniya Kurda neighborhood in Kobani city.”

North Press Agency listed the locations that the four shells struck as Al-Shaheed Kawa neighborhood south of the city, shops on Al-Arbaeen Street in the center of the city, Kania Kordan neighborhood and Kobani forest.

The US Embassy in Syria condemned the attack, tweeting that “We are deeply concerned by reports of shelling on Kobani and deplore any loss of civilian life. The United States calls on all parties to deescalate.”

Mazloum Abdî, the SDF General Commander, tweeted a statement: “Turkey is escalating violations of int’l covenants with guarantor countries against our regions. The targeting of Kobani, shelling of innocent civilians, & killings of administrative figures by drones are provocations that threaten security & peace & hinder anti-ISIS operations.”

All of the sources that reported on the incident attributed the strikes to Turkey.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
