Kurdish Forces Kill Several Turkish-Backed Militants In Two New Attacks In Aleppo (Videos)

Donate

The Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) announced on January 17 that its units had killed three Turkish-backed militants in two separate attacks in the northern Aleppo countryside.

In the first attack, which took place on January 13, a sniper of the ALF shot and killed a militant, who was manning a position in the town of Kil Jibrin, near the Turkish-occupied city of the Azaz.

Two days later, ALF fighters destroyed a vehicle of the Turkish-backed forces near the village of Villa Qadi in southern Afrin with an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM). Two militants who were aboard the vehicle were killed.

Last week, the ALF killed four militants and injured eight others in a series of operations in northern Aleppo. Turkish-backed forces failed to inflict any losses on the group, which relies on “hit-and-run” tactics.

The Kurdish guerrilla group stepped up its attacks following the October 2019 Turkish invasion of northeast Syria. By doing this, the group intended to support other Kurdish forces in the northeastern region.

      I partly rely on those informations, but I dont see the rest, which might even be perfect.

      Trump has no ideas about most things and his limitations as warlord.

      I can only see that military forces also has to be renewed and kept well. We kind of renwe ours. It takes time and is very expensive.

    The ALF are doing what they do best, killing the Turks and their proxies with complete impunity, but it’s getting to a point where they’re doing it too well, and now they’re starting to really piss Erdogan off.
    Not only has Turkey increased it’s artillery strikes against the Russian controlled territory the ALF operate out of, but Turkey has also began flight patrols over the area as well, so it’s a bit of a worry and something to be concerned about, the last thing Assad needs is now is for Turkish aircraft to start supporting the terrorists in Aleppo, hopefully Putin has a couple of S-400’s close by.

      I don’t think the Turks can do much against it. They haven’t carried out many artillery strikes in the Tal Rifaat pocket only a few and it’s always great to see when some rats die. I hope the ALF will kill more turkish terrorists.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        This month the Turks have been very quiet around Tall rif at until a couple of days ago, but that wasn’t the case last month or the month before, the Turks were hitting the ALF with retaliatory strikes a couple of times a week back then.
        I hope you’re right about the Turks though, I’d hate to see Turkish aircraft bombing the SAA, that would terrible.

        • xTheWarrior22

          I think they only targeted the SDF, but I’m not sure. They once shelled the NDF around Nubl or Zahraa and killed 8 fighters.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            Turkey’s been using artillery strikes against the ALF since January last year, and every time they do they put Russian lives in danger, but I suppose it’d be hard to complain about the Turks when the ALF who live and operate out of Russian controlled territory, are so effectively attacking Turkish controlled territory right next door.
