Airwars assessment

Local media reported the death of the civilian Mohammed Rasho, born in 1956, in an alleged Turkish airstrike on the village of Qustal Khadriya.

However, Nuce24 (which placed Mr Rasho’s death on February 10th at Berkashi) seemed to suggest that the victim was not a civilian. It reported that “the General Command of the People’s Protection Units issued a statement remembering the national and revolutionary martyr Mohammed Rachm (Khalo).” The source went on to claim that “Mohammed Rasho (Khalo) did not place old age before his insistence on resistance, and was an active member of the of community protection forces, and stood by our forces moment by moment, which over the years led to the responsibilities entrusted to him. He did not abandon the path of resistance until the moment of his death.”

The local time of the incident is unknown.
