Syria: Three women killed in Kobane drone strike near Turkish border​

At least three women were killed, including Kurdish feminist activist Zehra Berkel, after a drone strike on Tuesday evening in the Helince village (also known as Ghasaniyeh) near the Turkish-Syrian border city of Kobane. In footage from Wednesday, grieving family members and neighbours of the deceased presented extensive damage to the buildings, which lay in ruins from the attack. Two victims, Berkel and Mizgin Xelil, were members of the Kongra Star women's movement in the region. The group accused the Turkish government of targeting the activists on purpose with the drone strike. The third victim, Amina Waysi, was the owner of the house, according to local media. Mike Pompeo, ​US Secretary of State, reportedly played tribute to the drone strike victims, but did not specify who was behind the attack. Turkey is a member of NATO. There is currently a ceasefire in northern Syria, which was brokered in Ankara between Russia and the US following Turkey's military intervention in October 2019.
