BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) carried out two new attacks against the Turkish-backed rebels in the Afrin region this week.

The first attack was reportedly carried out on October 10th, when a YPG sniper killed one member of the Al-Waqas Brigade in the Shiya District.

“On October 10th, our unit carried out a sniper action targeting a mercenary of al-Waqas Brigade on the road leading to Senare village in Shiya district. As a result, a terrorist named Hammoud al-Juma was killed,” the official media wing of the YPG reported.

The following attack took place the day after, when a YPG unit ambushed members of the Sultan Murad Division in the Shera District.

“On October 11th, our units carried out a military operation in the village of Qeretepe of Shera district, targeting the members of the Sultan Murad Division mercenary fraction. As a result, two terrorists were killed,” the YPG added.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
