Two to three civilians were allegedly killed in Turkish airstrikes on Tal Slour, Jindires, Afrin. They were named by Afrin Now and the Kurdish Red Crescent.

Kurdi Post said that the strike came after midnight, and that Mrs Suleiman’s seven year old son was also killed, while a 10 year old girl was injured. However according to ANHA, which posted videos, her two children were injured.

A related tweet noted: “The child Mohammed Esmat Ali, 7 years old, from the village of Tal Sallur in the area of Gindressa, was orphaned and all his guilt was that he was sleeping like the rest of the world’s children with his mother. However, the attacks of the Turkish occupation forces on the village of Tal Sallour did not harm the safety and security of the child.”
