Reported civilian casualties from Turkish military actions in Iraq and Syria: 2018

Written by Airwars Staff on January 29, 2018


Listed below are all known reports from January 2018 onwards – via generally credible sources unless otherwise indicated – of non-combatant civilian deaths and injuries allegedly caused by Turkish military actions in Iraq and Syria. This is an all-source project, which includes media and social media postings from Kurdish- and Turkish-focused outlets.

The document also includes reports of Turkish and Syrian civilians reported killed in YPG strikes and counterfire, for example during the Afrin assault in January 2018. 

We include locations, dates and reported casualty numbers, as well as the names of victims where known. Also cross-referenced are any known Turkish air or artillery strikes in the vicinity – and any official Turkish or Kurdish response to a reported incident. We explain our grading system here.

Airwars draws on a wide range of sources. These can include international and local news agencies and NGOs; and more fragmentary social media sites including local residents’ groups, Facebook pages (for examples martyrs’ pages), YouTube footage of incidents, and tweets relating to specific events. On occasion we also include links to militant and terrorist propaganda sources which are directly pertinent to an event. These are always clearly marked as such.

We also monitor reports from regionally-focused monitoring groups which can include:
Syrian Network for Human Rights
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights
Syria Violations Documentation Center
Iraq Body Count
UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI)
Bellingcat (geolocation of strikes)
International Commission of Inquiry for Syria

Please note that this is an evolving dataset, which reflects our latest current understanding of any particular event. Records are subject to change.

Alleged Turkish events in Iraq

March 21st/22nd 2018: (T175)  villages in Choman area, east of Irbil, Iraq
Summary: Four civilians died and 10 more were injured in alleged Turkish airstrikes on villages in the Choman area of Iraqi Kurdistan, local sources reported. According to IC Afrin Resistance, the “Turkish army’s attacks and #TurkishWarCrimes are spreading: Yesterday night at 1:05 am Turkish air-forces bombarded villages in the district Qesre of Erbil (South #Kurdistan / Iraq). 4 civilians were killed due to the air-strikes. ”
The source later named two victims as
Kake Mistefa Ebubekir and Shero Mehmud Ibrahim.
Hana Comani put the death toll at four with 10 more wounded. While most sources state that all four who died in the strike were civilians, a report by PDK-S detailed that the young men who perished were “Three Peshmerga and one lawyer”.
ANA reported: “Turkish military aircraft launched at 01:00 in the middle of last night raids on the villages of “Wassan, Sargan, and Mawa” near  the town of Qusra in the district of Juman in the province of Holler. According to information received from the area, four civilians were killed during a ceremony in Nooruz.”
Additionally, a report by TRT said that “n
ine terrorists who were ready to attack a military base were eliminated in the ongoing air strike against PKK terrorist camps in northern Iraq.” It is unclear whether this is the same raid though the date and location match.

Summary: Three people were killed and two more were injured as a result of Turkish bombardments on the Sedkan district, stated local sources. Sources said dozens of families were displaced.
Almaalomah reported on a televised statement by the director of the Sedkan district, Ihsan Chalabi, who detailed that “more than 100 families had been displaced from the villages of the province because of the Turkish bombing”.

The article subsequently reported that Turkish helicopters also bombarded the hills and highlands in the district, “causing great fear among the citizens.”

January 20th 2018: (T1) عفرين , Afrin city, Aleppo governorate, Syria
Summary:
Up to six civilians were reported killed and possibly dozens more wounded in alleged air and artillery strikes by Turkish-backed troops on YPG forces in Afrin, according to local media on the ground. 
Al Jazeera reported that “Turkish artillery shelled the positions of the Kurdish People’s Protection and Protection Units in several areas of Afrin. No casualties were reported, according to news agencies close to the Kurdish protection units.”
However, other sources reported civilian casualties. According to Afrin Now, six civilians died in addition to  “a fighter from the Popular Protection Units and two from the women’s protection units”. It added that seven further non-combatants were wounded.

Al Arabiya also put the death count at six, though RuMafpage was among some other sources saying that three non-combatants died.
Neveen al Dalati named one victim as Yahya Hamada, seven years-old (aged 9 according to the Red Crescent), a refugee from Idlib.

Anha News also named him, but put him at nine-years-old.
According to Afrin Anha, a pro-Kurdish source, “Turkish aircraft bombarded the region of Afrin with dozens of missiles and dozens wounded in the ranks of civilians”. It published an image of a badly wounded child, covered with blood, with the caption “Is this child a terrorist, Erdogan you dog!”
Additionally, the source named the following civilians as injured:  “65-year-old Kenjo Kenjo, [head injury]; the two young brothers Yahia Hamada, 9-years-old [listed elsewhere as killed], and Khalid Hamada, 11-years-old, seriously injured in the stomach; Ammar Banj [or al Burj], 25-years-old; Hamada Muhamed Al Ali, 30-years-old; Fahd al Ahmad 39-years-old; Ibrahim Khalil, 45-years-old [shrapnel in the shoulder] and Zai’eem Osso, 19-years-old.” It went on to add that “the child Botan Mustapha, who suffers from diabetes, suffered a deteriorating psychological condition which has impacted his health” and that “according to the nursing staff at Afrin Hospital all the civilians are in a precarious condition after being seriously injured in different parts of the body, especially the children Yahia Hamada and Khaled Hamada.”
The Kurdish Red Crescent additionally named Ahmad al Ahmad aged 39 as injured in the attack (leg injury – possibly the same as Fahd al Ahmad); and Sabri Muhammad Muhammad (54 – shrapnel wounds.)
However, the Shaam News Network claimed that the images published by Afrin Anha and “media sites close to SDF forces in the Afrin area” were not from this incident but “dated to the bombing of the Assad forces in Aleppo in 2016. The pictures were inside Al Quds hospital in the neighborhood of al Sukkari [in Aleppo] at the time.”
Further research by Airwars revealed that the graphic image of the wounded child, which Free Afrin also claimed was from this event, was in fact published by the website stj-sy.com and referred to an casualty incident in Atarib, Aleppo in November 2017.
By way of explanation, Shaam added that “the official media and media allied to the SDF forces is playing on the civilian card to highlight Turkish aircraft and artillery targeting civilian areas. The purpose is to mobilize local and global public opinion for the SDF forces with the start of the military operation in the area Afrin”.
The source Free Anha published a number of pictures of “civilians” being treated in a medical facility. However, caution is also required with these images: the Turkish website Sanalbasin claimed that the people depicted were not civilians but were Kurdish fighters.
Al Bab Coordination committee published a list of the “targets bombed and destroyed by Turkish air force”:
‘Brigade 137
Headquarters of Meng airport
Malikiya checkpoint
Maranaz checkpoint
Shuraga checkpoint
Al Qadi farm HQ
Mount Barsaya
Qibar Artillery positions
Headquarters in the vicinity of Tel Rifaat
Headquarters in the vicinity of Afrin

It added that “The Turkish army’s operations room announced that the air force had carried out 112 air raids on positions of the terrorist militias in Afrin and its environs on 2018/1/20”.
Civilians reported killed: 3-6, including 1 child + 3 YPG fighters

January 21st 2018: (T5) Poultry farm at  عنابكة A’nabka [in some reports described as Abeen or Jalbara], Afrin countryside, Aleppo governorate, Syria
Summary:
At least 11 civilians, mostly children from several families, died in alleged Turkish airstrikes on a poultry farm at A’nabka, according to local media.
Afrin Now, Al Watan and Syria Steps all blamed Turkey. Afrin Now first placed the location of the strikes at Abeen, though later changed this to A’nabka – informing Airwars that the two villages are very close to each other. Casualties were also reported in Jalbara, though in a private message Afrin Now confirmed that this was the same location as A’nabka.
In a later report, the source said that there was a “Turkish airstrike against civilians in a warehouse in Jalbara. Our medical team were witnesses of this massacre, and rescued seven people from the the building. Many of them were children and there was even one under one-year-old. The victims were referred to the hospital. Eleven civilians were confirmed dead in this massacre, many of them children. We still don’t know anything about six people who were in the same building, and we are still trying to search for them”.
Welat FM and Step News Agency also reported that Turkey carried out raids on the village of Jalbara.

According to Welat FM, “three workers were killed  and ten wounded. They  were transferred to hospital. There are dozens of civilians under the rubble”.
According to Rojava, the death toll had climbed to 17 civilians, “most of them from a single family”.
Afrin Now named the following victims, “all of them from a displaced family from Ma’arat al-Nu’man”:

The source also published a number of images showing civilians being removed from the rubble following the air strikes.
Another image depicted “the funeral of 12 civilians and two fighters of the Syrian Democratic forces”, though it is unclear whether this photograph refers to this casualty event alone.
According to Alitihad Press “a medical source in the city of Afrin reported the death toll of the massacre of the village of Anakka southeast of the city to 10 people, including seven from one family who had been displaced from the city of Maarat al-Nu’man in rural Idlib.”

Free Afrin reported the names of the following civilian victims “whose bodies arrived at the hospital”:
Taha Al-Khater, 40 years old.
Amina Al-Khater
, 40 years old.

Zakiya al Khater 15
Suleiman Al-Khater

Israa Al-Khater
Kurdish Red Crescent named the following additional victims:
Mostafa Taha Al Khater (17yr) Female
Yusra Taha Al Khater (9yr) Female

Safa Taha Al Khater (19yr) Female
The story of the family’s death formed the basis of an article by Robert Fisk in The Independent, who said the strike took place at around 1am and hit the family home: “When Taha Mustafa al-Khatr, his wife Amina, his two daughters Zakia and Safa and son Sulieman went to bed in the tiny village of Maabatli, they placed their shoes outside the door. Most Middle Eastern families do the same. It’s a tradition and a sign of cleanliness in the home. The cheap plastic slippers were still there, of course, when the Turkish shell hit their house at one in the morning – and when I arrived a few hours later, I found the same shoes, a few blown down the stairs but most still neatly lined up next to each other. Did one of the daughters choose the slippers with the plastic bows? Even the rescue workers – such as they are in the Kurdish province of Afrin – didn’t touch the shoes. They left one of the blood-soaked bedspreads where it was in the rain under the collapsed roof of the cheap breeze-block house. The bodies, of course, had gone.”

We were all injured. We were all civilians, they hit the civilians not the military. There is no military there.
Off camera: You mean they’re deliberately hitting the civilians?
Woman: Yes, they demolished the civilians’ homes. They demolished half the village. There are still people there under siege we’ve spoken to them they’re still shelling the houses. There is a cave people are taking shelter in because the village is still being hit because they know there are civilians they won’t’ let anyone come out alive.

February 16th 2018: (T87)  Aranda, ارندة Afrin, Aleppo governorate, Syria
Summary: Local media reported that six civilians were injured following an alleged Turkish attack with missiles/artillery shells containing “toxic gas”.
According to Nuce 24, “the Turkish military occupation army targeted the village of Aranda, in the area of Shih, with an artillery shell poisoned by chemical gas (it is not yet known what the gas was). A doctor noted that the injured were suffering from nausea, burning in the eyes, itching in the body and vomiting.”

The injured victims were named by multiple sources as:
Abdul-Rahman Mohammed Saeed Al-Shaleek, 29.
Mahmood Rasheed Hasson, 33.
Waddah Mustafa Khalil, 35.
Ahmad Mohammed Hammo, 32.
Adnan Othman Shaliko, 35.
Mohammed Arif Hakki, 43.
According to Nuce, the clothes of victims had been sent for analysis to determine what chemical agents were involved.
Afrin Now reported a “statement from the management of Afrin Hospital”. The second page is from the chemistry lab, and reads: “
The central chemistry lab in Afreen carried out tests of earth samples presented by you on 16/2/2018 from the village of Arnada in Sheikh al Hadid area [the location of the raid]. The results were that the earth samples contain high levels of chlorine. Other samples from around the village were tested and did not contain any chlorine 18/2/2018.”

Rojava and IC Afrinresistance citing the Efrîn Health Council and the “Official Press Conference” on the attack also confirmed the presence of chlorine.
The Kurdish Red Crescent reported that the six injured experienced “several symptoms suspected of as symptoms of a chemical gas, such as respiratory issues – cough – eczema – skin irritation, narrowing pupil. The medics also suffered from skin itching and teary eyes.”
It was later reported that analysis had shown traces of chlorine. According to Xeber 24: “In a statement issued by the Health Council in Afrin province on 18 February 2018, the Afrin Hospital proved that the Turkish army used chlorine gas in the village of Aranda in the province of Shih. The Board indicated that they had based their report on samples that had been detected in the hospital’s laboratories.”
Reuters later carried a denial by an unnamed Turkish military source: “These are baseless accusations. Turkey never used chemical weapons. We take utmost care about civilians in Operation Olive Branch.” According to Reuters, “the source also described the accusations of wounding six civilians through a suspected gas attack as ‘black propaganda’.”
In a report by Reuters, Turkey denied using chemical weapons. Reuters reported: “Turkey never used chemical weapons in its operations in Syria, and takes the utmost care of civilians, a Turkish diplomatic source said, after Syrian Kurdish forces and a monitoring group accused it of carrying out a gas attack in Syria’s Afrin region.

‘These are baseless accusations. Turkey never used chemical weapons. We take utmost care about civilians in Operation Olive Branch,’ the source said.
The source also described the accusations of wounding six civilians through a suspected gas attack as ‘black propaganda’.”

February 22nd 2018: (T104) Afrin city centre, Afrin, Aleppo governorate, Syria
Summary: One possible civilian died and up to 12 others were wounded in an alleged Turkish artillery attack on a convoy headed to Afrin from Cizire and Kobane, in eastern Syria. Many reports said that the convoy was delivery medicine to the region.
Sana (Syrian state press), reported that “Turkish forces and his mercenaries pounded a convoy of aid and fuel vehicles and civilian vehicles on the road between Nabal and Afrin in northern Aleppo, wounded and killed  at least 13 civilian
s.
According to the SANA correspondent in Aleppo, the artillery of the Turkish regime forces targeted more than 50 missiles, a convoy of buses, civilian vehicles, trucks carrying aid, gas cylinders and fuel tanks before arriving in the city of Afrin.
The correspondent said that the Turkish aggression caused the death of a civilian and wounded 12 others, in addition to the destruction of a number of cars, trucks and fuel tanks, noting that the injured were taken to hospitals in the city of Afrin and the nearby town of Zahra.”
However, the Turkish army claimed that it was a military convoy. According to an article in Turk Press, the Turkish Chief of Staff  announced that “Turkish forces bombed a convoy of 30-40 vehicles loaded with weapons, ammunition and terrorists belonging to the BID, PKK and Da’ash organizations. The statement issued by the Turkish General Staff said that the bombing came during the movement of the convoy and its proximity to the city by 15 km.
The statement said that all possible measures have been taken to avoid any harm to civilians, as is the case in the military operations carried out within the olive branch.”
However, Abuturab 313 claimed that a military and a civilian convoy were travelling under supervision of the Syrian army.”
Daily Sabah News published an article in which the Turkish army claimed that the victims were militants. The source Almodon also reported that the strikes were against “the Popular Protection Units and the regime’s militia”, reporting that theconvoy consisted of about 100 vehicles and military vehicles, most of which were stationed in the Sheikh Maksoud neighborhood and Aleppo neighborhoods under the control of the Kurdish units”.
However, this was followed by a denial by the SDF Press, who said: “As the Turkish state used to fabricate and market lies, its leaders went out to the media to claim that the procession was armed, according to the Turkish president and Turkish army chief of staff.”
Video was posted by internationalist commune, who apparently were in the convoy that was targeted. A woman gives the following testimony:We passed the night with a family of Kobane. They shared everything with us. Early in the morning we continued our way to Afrin and some people from Kobane also join the convoy, we were almost 50 buses. We crossed the check point of the syrian regimen after several hours. In the night, when we were in the region of Afrin, we started to hear the bombing. The bombs were more and more close and at some point the convoy stopped in the middle of the road and turned off the lights. We were waiting in a line attached to the wall. Turkey started to bomb us directly and all the people started to run away. Some people were injured. We got splitted off around a village. Some people could reach the city center of Afrin, that was 10 km far away from where the convoy was stopped, other people couldn’t reach the city and passed the night in a house of villagers, that showed their solidarity in that difficult situation.”
The dead man was named as 27-year-old Salem Khalaf al-Khalif. However, a report by the Kuridish news agency Hawar News appeared to depict what looked like a military funeral for this victim – putting into question whether he was a civilian.
Additionally, reports listed the following civilians as wounded.

Summary: Up to 15 civilians including two or three children and five women died and up to 32 more were injured in alleged Turkish airstrikes in Jindires, local media said. However, it is possible that reports are referring to several events in Jindires, and may include T131-T133, listed above. Moreover, several sources published images which appeared to pertain to these other incidents, suggesting that the figures provided were a summary of events during the entire day of March 5th.
The source Cahida Dersim  referred to a Turkish shelling of the village of Miska Jorin, and went on to say that 13 civilians including three children had died in Jindires on march 5th.
Other reports also referred to “Jindires”, rather than Miska Jorin or any other location specifically.
IC Afrin resistance, foe example, reported that “Turkish warplanes bombed the center of Jindires. Civilians were injured and killed. There are still people under the ruins. They can’t be freed because the attacks are still ongoing”.
However, there was some confusion in tweets by IC Afrin Resistance: the first said that 13 civilians were wounded in Jindires, while the second said that 13 (including three children) were killed.

Hawar News published a video (below) depciting the shelling. It reported that “preliminary reports said that there were martyrs and wounded among civilians, but because of the intensive shelling we did not get the number of martyrs and wounded.”
One victim killed in Jindires was named by Arin Chikhmous as Mohammed Alo, 20 years.
According to ANHA, “i
n the morning hours, the Turkish occupation army bombed the center of Janders city with more than 20 booby-trapped barrels, directly targeting unarmed civilians in the district center causing the martyrdom of 13 civilians, including 3 children and 5 women, and injuring more than 14 civilians.”
Rok Online put the death toll higher. It said: “The Turkish forces carried out a massacre in the area of Jendiris on Monday [March 5th]  after launching violent raids on the region, killing 15 people and wounding about 8 others, including children and women, in addition to the destruction of buildings and shops.
SDF military media on Facebook reported that “after the failure of the Turkish occupation army to break into the region of Jendrissa, Turkish warplanes carried out crazy raids on the civilian neighborhoods, causing four massacres in one day.”
Civilians reported killed: 2-15, including 2-3 children and five women

Later the truck which carry the civilians was struck by an airstrike. At first it doesn’t take a direct hit so the civilians jump out of the vehicle and start to ran away. But they were targeted in a second airstrike.
The Turkish media claimed that the attack was carried out by YPG with a roadside explosive device but the footage shows otherwise.”

March 16th 2018: (T166) Afrin hospital, Afrin, Aleppo governorate, Syria
Summary: Between nine and 16 civilians died in alleged Turkish airstrikes on Afrin hospital, according to local media.
Pesmerge chali put the death toll and nine, while Rumaf and other sources said that 16 civilians died – reportedly “mostly children and women”.

The BBC reported on the event, quoting an Afrin resident, ‘Ranya’: “At night there were air strikes targeting Afrin hospital. There were a lot of victims there and due to the intensive shelling people cannot go to get the bodies. Some bodies are still there on the street.”
Turkey denied carrying out the strikes on the hospital. In response the SDF issued a statement accusing “Turkish media [of] hiding the massacres the invading Turkish state has committed against the people”. ANF reported on the SDF press release, as follows:
The Avrin Hospital was bombed by invading Turkish state fighter jets on March 16, 2018. Dozens of civilians were martyred and killed in the bombing, and the hospital where thousands of civilians receive treatment was greatly damaged.

After the bombing, the Turkish state’s official news agency the Anadolu Agency published a video that shows a building close to the hospital. With this footage they had published, the Turkish state wants to hide the fact that they bombed a hospital with fighter jets.
We declare to the public that the Avrin Hospital has been bombed by Turkish jet fighters and that the building in the footage the Turkish state had published is not the hospital building.
The bombing of the hospital has been documented with photographs and videos”.
Sana, the regime’s official media, put the death toll at 16 with “dozens” more injured.

Man: “No less than 6/7 people were killed.”
Voice off camera: “And the amputees?”
