Kurdish Forces Destroy Howitzer At Turkish Base In Afrin (Videos)


On December 3, the Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) shelled a Turkish base near the town of Gobele in the southern part of the occupied Afrin region in northern Aleppo.

A video released by the Kurdish group shows several explosions rocking the base as a result of accurate shelling by the ALF’s fighters, who used mortars and possibly anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).

In an official statement released on December 4, the ALF claimed that a Turkish service member was killed and two others were injured in the attack. A howitzer was also destroyed. The Turkish military has not commented on these claims, so far.

The ALF also announced that six Turkish-backed militants were killed in two other operations in northern Aleppo. In one of the operations, a militant was shot and killed by one of the group’s snipers.

Last month, ALF snipers and fighters killed five militants of the Turkish-backed al-Waqqas Brigade near the town of Marea in northern Aleppo.

The ALF’s attacks inflicted serious losses on Turkish-backed groups in northern Aleppo during the last two months. These attacks were apparently carried out in response to Turkey’s invasion of Kurdish-majority areas in northeast Syria.
