According to special sources inside Tal Rifa’t, the attack targeted the main market in the town. One of the martyrs was in a car accessories shop, getting prepared for his wedding today.
The Turkish occupation and its mercenaries are continuously shelling the Tal Rifa’t town and most of the al-Shahba’a areas which are inhabited by Afrin IDPs who were earlier forcibly displaced following the Turkish aggression on Jan. 20, 2018.
Following the attack, a Syrian-Russian joint patrol headed to the site of the airstrike, yet no statements were released.
In conjunction with the daily brutal Turkish shelling on the al-Shahba’a areas, the Syrian regime forces (Forth Division) have imposed a stifling blockade on the al-Shahba’a areas and the neighborhoods of the al-Sheikh Maksoud and Ashrafia. For the third day in a row, they prevent entering the fuel and the flour to the bakeries, increasing the suffering of the people who have been living in blackout for two nights.
