Turkish occupation mercenaries set fire to large areas of wheat and barley fields in Ras al-Ayn countryside

Hasaka, SANA – The Turkish occupation’s terrorist mercenaries continued their crimes and terrorist practices against citizens, setting fire to wheat and barley fields in villages in Ras al-Ayn area in the northern countryside of Hasaka.

Local sources told SANA correspondent that the Turkish occupation’s mercenaries on Wednesday set fires to large areas of wheat and barley fields in Farisah, al-Salhiyeh, and Tal Thalaj villages in the southwestern countryside of Ras al-Ayn in Hasaka province.

The sources pointed out that the aim behind of this criminal act is to expose hundreds of thousands of citizens in the Syrian al-Jazira area to the threats of poverty and famine, which amounts to one more war crime committed by the Turkish occupation against Syrians.

Fires which broke out in the agricultural lands in Ras al-Ayn on Tuesday led to the destruction of about 1,000 dunams planted with wheat, and a number of citizen’s houses burned down after the fire spread to them.
