At least two civilians were killed in southern Turkey on October 11 as a result of shelling by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), according to the Anadolu Agency.

The state-run news agency said that the deadly shelling targeted the the border district of Suruc in the Sanliurfa province.

A few hours earlier, two journalists of the Anadolu Agency were slightly injured when the Kurdish-dominated group shelled a building they were stationed inside in the Nusaybin district of southeastern Mardin province.

“The terrorists targeted the building with long-range weapons from YPG/PKK occupied areas across the Syrian border,” Anadolu Agency correspondent said.

On October 10, at least five civilians, including a nine-month old baby, were killed in SDF shelling on the border town of Akcakale and the southern province of Mardin.

The SDF has not acknowledged its responsibility for the shelling, so far. Earlier this month, the group warned that it will move the battle to Turkish territory, if Ankara forces attack its areas.
