Late on November 21, unidentified gunmen raided a headquarters of the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA) in the district of Bulbul in the northern part of the Turkish-occupied area of Afrin in northern Aleppo.
In the course of the raid, three Turkish-backed militants were killed. Several other militants were injured, according to opposition sources.
A day later, unidentified gunmen opened fire at a militant of the SNA’s Sultan Murad Division in Afrin’s city center. The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the militant was severely wounded in the attack.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, thus far. However, they were most likely carried out by one of the Kurdish guerrilla groups active in Afrin.
Earlier this week, one of these groups, the Afrin Liberation Forces, announced that its fighters had killed nine Turkish-backed militants and injured at least one other in three separate attacks in the area.
These attacks are slowly depleting Turkish-backed militants in Afrin. Turkey is not making any effort to put an end to these attacks, whcih increased in the last few months.
