DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:15 P.M.) – The Kurdish forces arrested members with ties to the Islamic State and the Turkish secret services which were planning attacks across the Kurdish-held territories in north and northeastern Syria.

The crackdown was carried out in a joint operation launched by YPG forces and the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) in the town of Sheikhlar, southwest of Kobani.

The statement released by the YPG Press Office said that on September 19, dozens of Turkish backed mercenaries affiliated to the groups in the Turkish controlled Euphrates Shield zone and ISIS members were captured alive.

The operation also allowed the Kurdish forces to seize large quantities of weapons including 2 B-7 anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade launchers and 10 warheads, 11 AK-47 rifles, 2 night vision glasses, 4 binoculars, 14 cell phones, 4 radio devices and 9 pistols.

“11 AK-47 rifles”
=> AK-47 is no more built since 1962. It’s more a collectible than smth available today…
In fact, the most common ‘Kalashs’ you may find are AKM for 7.62×39 and AK-74 for 5.45×39.
AKM is also no more built for a while but it was so much mass-built that it’s absolutely ubiquitous even today…

Captured mujahideen alive. Highly doubt. Could not even show one video or picture of capture mujahideen.
