On November 7th, four militants were killed in two separate attacks in the Turkish-occupied part of Aleppo’s northern countryside.
In the morning, three militants of the Free Police engineer units were killed when an improvised explosive device (IED) they were transporting blew up. The IED was found near the hospital of al-Bab city. The militants thought that the IED was defused. However, it was still active.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement released by its news agency, Amaq. The terrorist group said the IED was remotely detonated by its operatives.

A state of chaos is prevailing over Turkish-occupied areas in northern and northeastern Syria. Attacks are taking place there on a daily basis.
The day before, a Turkish-backed militant was killed and two others were injured in an IED attack in the occupied area of Afrin. Prior to that, a senior commander was assassinated in the city of al-Bab by ISIS. A bombing also killed a militant in the Turkish-occupied part of northern Raqqa.
Despite the repeated attacks, Turkey is not taking any steps to improve security in the areas occupied by its proxies in northern and northeastern Syria.
