BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) released a new statement this week that detailed their operations in northern Syria last month.
According to the YPG, their forces killed at least 42 Turkish soldiers and rebels during their operations in October.
Of the 42 killed, at least three were Turkish soldiers and the remaining were rebels loyal to Ankara.
Furthermore, the YPG said they destroyed eight military vehicles that belonged to the Turkish-backed rebels.
All of the YPG’s operations were conducted inside the Afrin region of northwest Aleppo; this area was captured by the Turkish-backed rebels in early March of this year.
