The Turkish occupation army and its mercenaries from Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS launch violent attacks on the village of Shirkrak and its silos. The occupation army and its mercenaries take the village of Kuramaz as the main base for launching attacks on the area. For their part, the SDF uses their right to legitimate defense and counter attacks by the occupation army and its mercenaries.
The strategic importance of Shirkrak village
Due to its strategic location, the Turkish occupation army and its mercenaries are attacking the village of Shirkrak because of its strategic location. It is located south of the center of Girê Spi/ Tall Abyad and north of 'Ein Issa. It is located at the crossroads of the road leading to the city of Girê Spi, and at the same time on the international road leading to al-Jazeera and the Euphrates region and the rest of the Syrian interior.
Due to the importance of this village, the occupation army seeks to control it.
Since the attacks, Turkish planes have bombed Shirrak silos, which contain more than 50,000 tons of wheat. As a result of the repeated shelling, a large quantity of stored wheat has been damaged to provide bread to the people of the region.
Sources from the occupied villages said that more than 200 mercenaries, together with more than six military vehicles and armored vehicles, gathered in the vicinity of the village of Shirkrak, and surrounded the civilians in those villages to prevent them from leaving.
In the morning, the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries bombed the village of Shirkrak in an attempt to approach the village.
All attempts by the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries to control the village and its silos have so far failed.
