A group of Turkish-backed militants has been eliminated by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the northern Raqqa countryside.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said the militants attempted to infiltrate the SDF-held town of Kubrlik late on May 16. The militants used underground tunnels between their positions in the outskirt of the Turkish-occupied town of Tell Abyad and Kubrlik.
However, the attack failed after the militants fell in an ambush set by the SDF in the vicinity of Kurlik. All the attackers were killed, according to the SOHR.
“All the elements who attempted to sneak in [to Kubrlik], numbered at least 14, were killed, their bodies are still in the area,” the SOHR’s report reads.
Neither the SDF or the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army (SNA) have commented on the SOHR claims so far.
The SDF and the SNA exchange attacks in northeast Syria on a regular basis. Two weeks ago, Turkish forces captured two Kurdish fighters that attempted to infiltrate one of their positions near the town of Ras al-Ayn using DIY “invisibility suits.”
