On June 27, fierce clashes broke out between Turkish-backed militants and Kurdish forces near the town of Maraanaz in northern Aleppo.

The Syrian National Army (SNA) claimed that its militants had raided the positions of Kurdish forces in the outskirts of Maraanaz. However, Kurdish sources reported that Kurdish fighters had targeted a number of militants who had been laying mines near the town, and this had led to the clashes.

According to the SNA, six Kurdish fighters were killed in the clashes. The group claimed no casualties among its soldiers. Nevertheless, Kurdish sources said that at least three Turkish-backed militants had been killed.

Maraanaz is located in a narrow area jointly controlled by Kurdish forces, mainly by the People’s Protection Units, and the Syrian Arab Army.

Turkish-backed militants and Kurdish forces clash with each other in northern Aleppo on a regular basis. However, the Turkish military rarely intervenes to support its proxies in this area. This prevents any serious escalation.

    “However, the Turkish military rarely intervenes to support its proxies in this area. This prevents any serious escalation.”

    Don’t they, that’s funny because every time I check I see the opposite, every time there’s any sort of hostilities between the Kurds and the Turkish forces [or their proxy forces] the Turkish artillery opens fire on Syrian held territory, that’s what ALWAYS happens every single time.
    The Turks just killed an old Kurdish woman with an artillery strike the other day, it’s Assad’s forces who don’t escalate hostilities after the Turks hit them for no reason.
