A funeral was held for Zau Seng, a Myanmar medic and member of the Free Burma Rangers (FBR) humanitarian group, who died in a mortar attack near Tal Tamr, northeastern Syria, on November 3. The funeral was held in the city of Al-Malikiyah on Thursday.

Seng, a 39-year-old ethnic Kachin man from northern Myanmar, was fatally hit by "a projective" as he was filming fighting some four kilometres (2.48 miles) from Tal Tamr, according to FBR founder David Eubank.

Footage shows scores of people attending the funeral, with some holding FBR banners and pictures of late Seng. The funeral was also held for fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) recently killed near Tal Tamr.

Eubank has blamed the attack on the "Free Syrian Army and Turks." Ankara has denied responsibility for the attack, which also wounded an Iraqi translator and coordinator.

Turkey launched an offensive, dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring', on October 9 with the aim of creating a 'safe zone' in northeastern Syria cleared of Kurdish forces.
