Turkish airstrikes targeted Zarba oil station, in Al-Hasakah Governorate, according to local workers on Wednesday.

Media outlets claimed the raids targeted sites controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), as well as oil and gas fields in separate areas north of Hasakah.

"I'm a staff member at al-Zarba Station. We were in the room when a Turkish drone hit the station at 12:00. The intensity of the bombing was enough to throw us to the ground. After half an hour, al-Saaida Station was targeted, then Ouda Station and Swedieh Station, all those stations are affiliated with Qamishli. As you can see, the fire is still burning, all the stations stopped operating, oil is no longer being pumped, and the electricity went out,” said Khalil Hassan, an employee at al-Zarba oil station.

The official website of the SDF claimed that the Turkish army had launched an air operation into northern Syria with warplanes and drones, in addition to heavy artillery shelling, tanks and missiles.

Turkish authorities claim to have eliminated at least 254 militants and hit 471 targets in Kurdish-controlled areas of Syria and Iraq since the operation began over the weekend.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that these operations are “just the beginning” as Turkey could launch a ground offensive.
