The Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) announced on November 15 that its cells had carried out two successful ambushes deep inside the Turkish-occupied part of northern Aleppo.
Two Turkish-backed militants were killed in the first ambush which took place on a road between the towns of al-Rai and Azaz on November 13. A day later, a similar ambush near the town of Maabatli in northwestern Afrin claimed the lives of two other militants.
The ALF released photos showing the dead bodies of the slain militants and the vehicles, which were damaged in the ambushes.
Last week, commander of the Turkish-backed Northern Brigade, Abdel Halim Rahim, was assassinated by ALF cells in northern Aleppo. Kurdish operatives used an improvised explosive device (IED) to kill the commander.
The ALF stepped up its attacks on Turkish-occupied areas in northern Aleppo, especially Afrin, following the Turkish-led attack on Kurdish areas in northeast Syria, which began last month.
