The Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) announced on November 26 that its units had eliminated five militants and injured six others in a new attack on the Turkish-occupied part of the northern Aleppo countryside.
The well-planned attack targeted several positions of the so-called al-Waqqas Brigade in the village of Tuweys, near the town of Marea.
The ALF released a short video of the attack, showing its fighters targeting Turkish-backed militants with sniper rifles equipped with thermal sights.
The al-Waqqas Brigade is one of the smaller Turkish-backed groups in northern Aleppo. Despite its limited resources, the group is participating the Turkish-led attack on northeast Syria, codenamed Operation Peace Spring.
Since the beginning of the Turkish-led operation last October, the ALF has stepped up its attacks in northern Aleppo, mainly near the area of Afrin.
