NORTH AND EAST SYRIA — Human Rights Watch (HRW) condemned the Turkish bombardment campaign targeting vital civilian infrastructure in North and East Syria that threatens to create a widespread humanitarian disaster.
HRW Deputy Director of the Middle East and North Africa Department Adam Coogle stated that the Turkish attacks on vital facilities and infrastructure in North and East Syria have caused significant damage, including water and electricity cut off for millions of people.
In a report released on Thursday, HRW noted that the Turkish attacks on North and East Syria have exacerbated the humanitarian crisis in the region.
It pointed out that the deliberate Turkish strikes on infrastructure are not new, indicating that the airstrikes in 2022 also caused massive damage to populated areas and vital infrastructure.
Human Rights Watch called on Turkey to immediately stop targeting vital infrastructure, including power and water plants.
