Reacting to attacking Turkish soldiers | Over 50 rockets and artillery shells hit positions in two Kurdish-held villages in Afrin countryside
Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported that Turkish forces and their proxies have fired over 50 artillery shells and rockets on Mar’enaz and Alqamiya villages in Sharran district in Afrin countryside. However, no casualties have been reported yet.
These developments came after two Turkish soldiers were killed when their vehicle was targeted near Mare’ city in the northern countryside of Aleppo, but the Turkish forces acknowledged of the death of only one member of the Special Task Police.
A few hours ago, SOHR activists obtained information, that was not verified, on the death of two Turkish soldiers and the injury of two militiamen of Turkish-backed factions, after targeting their vehicles with a guided missile fired by Afrin Liberation Forces near Mare’ city in north Aleppo countryside.
SOHR activists had reported that at least three members of the Turkish-backed factions and a Turkish soldier were injured by targeting a military vehicle they were traveling in with a guided missile fired by Afrin Liberation Forces. The attack took place on Sandaf road near the city of Mare’ in the northern countryside of Aleppo, amid unconfirmed reports of the death of the Turkish soldier affected by the severe wounds he sustained.
Meanwhile, Turkish forces bombarded the Kurdish-held village of Sheikh Issa in the northern countryside of Aleppo with artillery, as a reaction to the attack by the Kurdish-backed military formation near the town of Mare’, which injured the Turkish soldier.
Yesterday, SOHR activists reported that a drone bombarded the surrounding areas of the Kurdish-held village of al-Bayloniyah in the northern countryside of Aleppo, but no further details were reported about the number of casualties and material damage caused by the recent attack.
