Opposition casualties, injuries in Syria’s Afrin
AFRIN, Syria (North Press) – An unidentified attack targeted the headquarters of a Turkish-backed armed opposition group in Sharan district in Syria’s Afrin on Monday, causing three members to lose their lives and wounding others.
Unidentified gunmen, who were riding a motorcycle, fired on a headquarters of the Levant Front in the countryside of Afrin, killing three members and wounding others, local sources told North Press.
A three-year-old child was indiscriminately shot on Saturday by a member of the Turkish-backed armed opposition’s Ninth Legion of the National Army, in Vilas Street in Afrin.
Meanwhile, Sedjo town near the Syrian-Turkish border witnessed security tension on September 16, according to reports by the Syrian Observatory Human Rights (SOHR).
The security tension took place after members of Levant Front attacked the town in order to arrest a group affiliated with them amid continuous quarrels within the groups themselves, according to SOHR.
Afrin has been witnessing security chaos such as kidnapping, theft, murder, and intra-opposition clashes which have led to the deaths and injury of dozens of residents there since Turkey and its affiliated opposition groups took control of Afrin on March 18, 2018.
