The Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) has claimed responsibility for the July 24 missile attack on Turkish troops in the northern countryside of Syria’s Aleppo.
Two Turkish service members were killed and two Turkish-backed militants were wounded as a result of the missile strike.
The attack fighters of the ALF destroying a BMC Kirpi MRAP [mine-resistant ambush protected] vehicle of the Turkish Armed Forces on a road of the northeast to the Turkish-occupied town of al-Bab with an anti-tank guided missile. Footage of the attack was released by the ALF on July 25.
In response to the attack, the Turkish military carried out heavy artillery strikes on Kurdish-held areas in the northern Aleppo countryside. No casualties or material losses were reported.
The Turkish strikes failed to deter Kurdish forces, which were allegedly behind a rocket attack that targeted the Turkish-occupied city of Afrin in the northern countryside of Aleppo in the noon of July 25.
Any further attacks by Kurdish forces on the Turkish military and its proxies could lead to a serious military escalation in the northern Aleppo countryside.
