Turkish drones attack targets in northeast Syria
ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – Turkish drones attacked a car south of Kobani and a house in Qamishlo, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) war monitor reported on Wednesday.
The SOHR report said the attack near Kobani injured three Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) fighters.
According to the Syria-based Hawar News Agency (ANHA), the drone targeted a car on the road between the villages of Ediq and Takhtak, located south of Kobani, on Wednesday afternoon.
The Kongra Star Women's Movement Rojava tweeted that there was an explosion in Qamishlo on Wednesday morning that was "most likely caused by a drone strike."
The movement said the strike "took place in a house at the Hîzamî street, close to the Turkish border."

Also, on Wednesday, there was Turkish shelling near Ain Issa as well as on Tuesday near Tal Tamr.
