  •  US occupation forces kill one in Syria, injure several others

US occupation forces have carried out a so-called troop airdrop operation in Syria's northeastern province of Hasakah, killing at least one civilian and injuring several others.

Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that the raid was carried out in the village of Salham, southeast of the town of al-Shadadi in the southern countryside of Hasakah on Sunday. 

According to local sources, the US offensive was conducted with the help of Washington-backed Kurdish militants affiliated with the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). 

The sources added that the airdrop operation was accompanied by heavy and indiscriminate shooting at the villagers’ homes and the surrounding agricultural lands.

They went on to say that the US occupation forces and the SDF militants cordoned off the village, and opened fire on people who tried to leave the area, which led to the death of a civilian and the injury of several others.
