BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 A.M.) – The Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) killed scores of fighters from the Turkish-backed rebels in the northwestern countryside of Aleppo this weekend, the group’s official media wing reported on Saturday.
“Our forces carried out actions on the military bases of the occupying Turkish army forces in the past two days,” the YPG announced in a statement on Friday.
According to the YPG’s official media wing, their forces managed to kill “a large number of soldiers and mercenaries” in the town of Qurtaqulak.
The official media wing of Operation Olive Branch has yet to corroborate these latest reports.
Operation Olive Branch began earlier this year and resulted in the Turkish-backed rebels seizing the entire Afrin Region of northwest Aleppo.
