The Kurdish YPG and pro-Turkish militant groups have been clashing across the northern part of Syria. According to local media activists, firefights erupted in the village of Kafr Kashir south of Azaz on Friday. Earlier, sporadic clashes were reported between the YPG and pro-Turkish militants in Qabbaseen.
Reports indicate significant tensions between the two power-brokers in northern Syria and these tensions will grow as the Turkey-led forces will attempt to strom the key ISIS-controlled town of al-Bab.
The YPG sees al-Bab as a key point that will allow to link-up the Kurdish conrolled areas in Syria and will continue attempts to prevent Turkey from taking control of it.
