On Monday, shelling by the Turkish army and armed opposition factions on the countryside of Syria’s Tel Tamr wounded a woman and one of her children as they attempted to flee the bombardment.

Since the morning hours, civilian-populated villages in the countryside of Tel Tamr have witnessed violent bombardment by Turkish forces and their affiliated armed opposition factions.

A military source in the Tel Tamr Military Council said that Turkish forces and the opposition factions targeted the villages of al-Dardara, Qabr al-Qarajneh, al-Mujaybara and Ain al-Abd, east of the town of Tel Tamr, with artillery and mortar shells.

According to the source, about ten shells fell on the aforementioned villages and their surroundings, causing a new wave of displacement among civilians who sought refuge in the villages and neighboring areas.

As a result of the bombing, Aisha al-Hassan and her child Hussein Salem were wounded while they were trying to flee from the village of Ain Al-Abd in the eastern Tel Tamr countryside, and were transferred to a hospital in the town.

This comes four days after the Turkish army targeted the village of al-Dardara in the countryside of Tel Tamr, the third time that the Turkish army and armed factions targeted the countryside of Tel Tamr within a week.
