ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) A Turkish drone strike on Tuesday evening killed three civilian females at a residence in the village of Helincê, located outside the northern Syrian city of Kobani, according to local security forces.
The General Command of the Kurdish-led Internal Security Forces (ISF), also known as the Asayesh, in an official statement said blamed the Turkish occupation for the attack.
We in the General Command of the Internal Security Forces (ISF) for Northeast Syria condemn the crimes of the Turkish occupation against our people and we also call on the International Coalition and the Russian Federation to do their duty.
The ISF demanded that the United States and Russia hold Turkey to its stated commitment to the ceasefire agreement between the two states of Russia and Turkey.
After Turkey intervened in northeastern Syria in October 2019, Russia and the US reached separate ceasefire deals with Ankara, which allowed Turkish troops to control the area between Tal Abyad and Ras al-Ain (Serikaniye).
Despite the agreements, Turkish-backed groups and Turkish army continue to occasionally target areas held by the SDF. In some cases, villagers living in the Syrian-Turkish border areas were killed in attacks by the Turkish army and Turkish-backed rebel forces.

Syria Ping List
Looks like targeted assassination of political opponents, rather than any legitimate militarytarget.
A violation of the laws of war.
Erdooo thinks the only rule is him.
I loath what he is.
Another post coming in a moment.
As much as I know and agree with where you are coming from, there is no help coming for them.
If they were low on the US list of priorities before, they’re not even on the list anymore.
We still have troops in Der Ezzor, holding the oil refinery, commercial bank and applying mild pressure on Assad.
Well at least that is good to know
