“Most of the Afrin victims are women and children”


A chief physician from Afrin refuted Turkish reports that the army is attacking only military targets, stressing that those killed are mainly women, children and older men, and half of those killed and seriously injured are not from Afrin, but refugees.

Chief physician of the Avril Hospital in Afrin, which is targeted by the Turkish state’s attacks for 12 days, has announced figures regarding the civilians affected by the attacks.
