The Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) announced on July 27 that its snipers and sleeper cells had killed five Turkish-backed militants and injured one other in a series of new operations in the occupied area of Afrin and its surroundings.
According to the Kurdish guerrilla group, the operations, which took place between July 24 and 26, targeted positions of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement, the Sham Legion and other Turkish-backed groups in the district of Sherawa and near the town of Marea.
A video of one of the attacks shows Kurdish snipers hitting at least two militants stationed in a position near Marea in northern Aleppo.
Earlier this week, six fighters of the Sham Legion, including a commander, were killed and three others were injured in a well-executed attack by the ALF’s cells in southern Afrin.
The Turkish military and its proxies in northern Aleppo have lost dozens of fighters since the beginning of this year in attacks carried out by the ALF and other Kurdish guerrilla groups.
