Security chaos | Pro-Turkey policeman dies of wounds sustained in earlier attack in eastern Aleppo
Aleppo province – The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has documented the death of a member of the “special forces” affiliated with the police and public security forces in the city of Al-Bab, eastern Aleppo, affected by the injuries due to gunfire by unknown gunmen a few hours ago. Last night SOHR activists said that two unidentified gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire on a member of the special forces of police and public security forces in the areas held by Turkish-backed factions in the city of Al-Bab, east of Aleppo, injuring him seriously. The man was taken to hospital for treatment, while the gunmen escaped.
Security chaos continues in the areas held by Turkish-backed factions, in light of the proliferation of weapons and factional and tribal conflicts in the region.
On April 17, the Syrian Observatory documented the death of a civilian by unidentified gunmen after they failed to kidnap him, in the village of Baladq Kabir, west of the city of Jarablus, which is held by pro-Turkey factions in the northeastern countryside of Aleppo.
