Syrian Kurdish YPG: Turkish army hit school, water plant in Syria's Afrin
Turkish forces shelled a primary school and a water plant in Syria’s northern Afrin region, Syrian Kurdish fighters and Syrian state media said on Wednesday. A Turkish military source denied the allegations, Reuters reported.
YPG spokesman Nouri Mahmoud said Turkey’s army and its Syrian insurgent allies hit the main water plant that supplies Afrin city. Technicians, he said, were trying to repair destruction at the treatment and pumping facility after the artillery knocked it out of service. Mahmoud said shells also struck a primary school in the Maydanki village a day earlier but caused no casualties.
Asked about the reports, the Turkish military source said: “The Turkish armed forces are not aiming at these kinds of targets.”
