Infighting flares up among Turkish-backed militants over stolen objects in northern Syria

Infighting has erupted among Turkish-backed Takfiri militants in Syria’s northeastern Hasakah province following dispute over distribution of stolen objects, a report says.

The clashes broke out among the Turkish-backed al-Rahman Corps, the Sultan Murad Division, and Mu’tasim Division in several villages near the towns of Tal Tamr and Ras al-Ain, north of Hasakah province, sources have told the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

The infighting flared up after dispute over distribution of stolen objects, which the terrorists looted from houses in the area. They also had disagreements over taking over the houses.

Members of the Sultan Murad Division also set numerous houses in Bu’ayrir village in rural Ras al-Ain on fire after looting them, the SOHR reported.

The arson attack came as in mid-April another Turkish-backed militant group had burned residential buildings in Hasakah.

The acts of arson took place in the town of Tel Arqam, which lies 10 kilometers west of the city of Ras al-Ain near Syria’s border with Turkey, where militants from the so-called Badr Martyrs’ Battalion attacked the area.

There has also been a surge in abductions in the areas where the Turkish-backed Takfiri militants are present, particularly in Ras al-Ain.
