The barbaric strikes and shelling of Turkish army targets civilian areas, vital facilities and infrastructure in the region ,Where power stations, grain silos, hospitals, clinics, and schools were targeted . Today, November 23, and in an escalation, the killing machine of the Turkish forces is resorting to a series of systematic targeting of oil and gas fields and facilities in the areas of Derik, Tribsibi, Girgi Lege, Rumilan Which caused great destruction, the outbreak of fire, and the leakage of oil and gas from wells and fields, amid the inability of the firefighting teams to reach or control the flames leakage caused by continued bombing. While there is no secret about the devastating impact of this bombing on the environment of the region and the health of the population, which suffers poor conditions as a result of droughts, degradation of vegetation and deliberate cutting of water by Turkey.

We also call for the Turkish state and its army leaders the accountability for the environmental damage, and to bring them to justice.
