Kurdish Fighters Kill, Injure 15 Turkish-Backed Militants In Northern Aleppo (Video)

Donate

At least six Turkish-backed militants were killed and nine others were injured in a new attack by Kurdish fighters in the Euphrates Shield (ES) area in northern Aleppo.

The Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) claimed responsibility for the attack on October 19. The group said that its fighters attacked a position of the Turkish-backed National Syrian Army (NSA) near the town of Tuways in the Turkish-occupied area, two days earlier.

The Kurdish group released a video of the attack showing its fighters targeting NSA militants with what appears to be sniper rifles equipped with thermal sights.

The Al-Waqas Brigades of the NSA confirmed the fact of the attack. It identified the killed militants as Omar Qasim, Ahmad Najar, Khalifah al-Za’l, Abd al-Muni’am Abdullah, Amar al-Lakah and Taqi al-Din al-Ali.

The ALF intensified its attacks following the beginning of the Turkish-led Operation Peace Spring against the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northeast Syria. Local observers believe that the guerrilla group is affiliated with the SDF.

    I guess turkey was right when they thought US equipment given to Kurds would be used against them.

      That and US special ops training. Those Kurds were pretty slick in the video, where two got up close to the left of the NSA fighters to shoot them as they ran for cover from a frontal sniper attack.

        but the kurds is a force too small and they will succumb to an overwhelming turkish/syrian force, since neither if those two will allow any kind of independence to the traitorous kurds. you just can’t trust them.

          The Kurd’s managed to genocide millions of indigenous Christians during the Kurdish created Armenian genocide.
          Anyone who can manage genocide millions of civilians and stealing their home lands then calling it Kurdish lands later should be able to stand up and fight man to man against these Syrian-based militias.

          If you want loyal minorities, you have to treat them right. Murdering them as a minority just breeds resistance. All kurdish resistance is the result of wrong policies by the occupying countries and external interference.

      Of course they were. Kurds are attacked illegally, even when complying with a bad deal between Turkey and USA. To defend their homes, properties, liberties and lives against head chopping islamists, of course they use all the arms they have. As is their moral and legal right.
