Raʾs al-ʿAyn: Two children killed by rockets

KurdWatch, August 7, 2013—On July 22, 2013, eleven year old Nalin Mahmud Taqraq was killed when a residence in southern Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê) was shelled by rockets. Several family members were severely injured. Nalin's ten year old sister Sherin succumbed to her injuries on July 28. The rockets allegedly originated from the Islamist Jabhat an‑Nusrah, which was driven out of the city by the Democratic Union Party's (PYD) People's Defense Units (YPG) in July [further information]. The Jabhat an‑Nusrah controls several villages in the south and west of the city and continues to have small skirmishes with the YPG.
