ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – Two Syrian government soldiers were injured when Turkish forces fired rockets at their positions near the Abyan/Binah village in the Sherawa district of the northwestern Kurdish Afrin enclave, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) war monitor reported on Wednesday.

“Turkish rockets also hit the outskirts of Abyan village,” read the SOHR report. “However, no further details have been reported about the number of casualties caused by the attack.”

This isn’t the first such Turkish rocket attack targeting Syrian government soldiers this month.

On Mar. 16, SOHR activists also reported that two Syrian soldiers were critically injured in a Turkish rocket attack. The rockets were launched by Turkish forces stationed at the scientific research building on the outskirts of the city of Azaz, occupied by Turkey since 2016, at Syrian Army positions in Al-Alqamiyah, Maranaz, and Menj in Aleppo’s northern countryside.
