The repeated attacks of the Turkish army on Rojava and the location of our units has been announced repeatedly to the public opinion over the past period. In a time where all the sides are trying them best to come up with a political solution for the Syrian crisis, the Turkish state does not stop its violations by passing Rojava border.
The last of those violations was in the 28th and 29th of current January, where a unit of Turkish army violated Roj ava border in Sermsak village 13 km west of Derik city and 13 km north of Gerge lege in Jazira canton.
In 30th of January, in the same village the Turkish army fired heavily with live bullets on people who gathered to protest against Turkish violations. Fortunately, the were no causalities.
