DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:05 P.M.) – More Turkish-backed militants are assassinated by Kurdish fire in northern Syria in hit-and-run operations.
The YPG press office released an official statement declaring two Turkey-trained rebel fighters killed across Afrin region.
On September 7, YPG gunmen ambushed Abdurrahman al-Zaher; a fighter in the FSA-affiliated al-Hamza Brigades (originally from Azaz city) on the road leading to Afrin’s Shera district.
The next day, YPG members carried out an operation where they killed a militant fighting for Ahrar al-Sharqiyah faction.
Scores of Turkish-backed militants have been killed since the Syrian rebels – backed by Turkish military- took over Afrin region on March 2018.
