On Tuesday evening just about the time of sunset an apparent US drone strike took place in Aqrabat, just a few kilometers from the Turkish border in Syria. Abu Ibrahim Tunisee was killed in the attack. However, one man and 4 children were also injured in the attack.
The strike occurred as Abu Ibrahim’s car drove up to a refugee camp compound. The victim drove through deserted terrain on his way past the refugee camp, leaving residents to question and wonder why the attack took place in an area children were playing.
US forces have been stepping up the drone campaign in recent weeks against Jabha Fath Sham members operating in Syria.
