Turkish-backed militants are clashing with each other in the occupied town of Tell Abyad in northern Raqqa, less than 24 hours after similar clashes in al-Hasakah.

The clashes started on July 4 at noon between militants of the al-Shamiya Front and the al-Majid Corps. A local source familiar with the matter told the Orient TV that the clashes had erupted when the al-Shamiya Front had attempted to seize a shipping route.

The militants are clashing with each other in the center of Tell Abyad, near the border crossing north of the town as well as in the nearby village of al-Yabisah.

Al-Shamiya Front militants reportedly managed to capture the Agricultural bank, a headquarters of the al-Majid Corps. Both groups are now using heavy weapons, including large-caliber machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, two militants of the al-Majid Corps have been killed in the clashes, thus far. Seven others were injured.

Late on July 3, similar clashes between militants of the Sultan Murad Division and local tribesmen loyal to the Hamaza Division took place in northern al-Hasakah. The clashes claimed the lives of four militants and a little girl, identified as Rimas Mohamad Ashhrha.

The Turkish military, which is present in northern al-Hasakah and Raqqa, is not taking any steps to end the fierce battles between its proxies. Ankara rarely intervenes in such conflicts.
