BEIRUT (Sputnik) – The shelling was carried out in the Afrin district of the Syrian Aleppo province. Hedu said that "a young man was killed" and "dozens of civilians received injuries" in at least four villages in the area.

"The shelling continues," the PYD member stressed.

Turkish forces regularly come into confrontation with the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), and its military wing People's Protection Units (YPG) operating in Syria, which Ankara considers to be an affiliate of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), outlawed in Turkey.

The Turkish military launched an operation to clear the Syrian border town of Jarabulus and the surrounding area of the Islamic State, outlawed in Russia and multiple other countries, on August 24 prompting accusations of invasion from Damascus and Syrian Kurds.
