Kurdish forces have taken back the village of Shaykh Khurus and the nearby hill from Turkish forces, the media wing of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) said on February 6.
According to the statement, the YPG and its allies destroyed a Turkish vehicle and captured another one [ACV-15] as well as captured two “terrorists” – most likely members of the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA).

The Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and the FSA entered the village of Shaykh Khurus and Shaykh Khurus Hill earlier this week, but were not able to secure them. Fierce fighting erupted there and the YPG claimed that it had retaken this area. However, the village and the hill de-facto remained contested as the both sides are now competing for them.
