Aleppo - SMART

On Thursday, the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) revealed a series of operations described as "qualitative" against the factions of Olive Branch Operation in the Afrin area, Aleppo, Northern Syria, in the recent two days.

The YPG said in a statement on its official website that its members attacked the fighters of the Hamzah Brigade and Sham Corps, killing 19 fighters and wounding others in the Afrin area. The YPG also assassinated a leader in the Sultan Murad Brigade and destroyed three military vehicles.

The YPG explained that its members clashed with the fighters of the Hamzah Brigade in the village of Baaiya in Nahiyat Sharan, Afrin, killing ten of them. This clash comes in retaliation for the killing of two members of the YPG in the same village on Aug. 8.

The YPG added that they exploded an explosive device in a military vehicle after crowds arrived in the village, killing five others and destroying a vehicle they were traveling in. The YPG also exploded two explosive devices on the road between the villages of Baaiya and Kafernbo, killing four fighters, including a leader in the Sham Corps.

The YPG's statement said that the Turkish army and its backed Olive Branch factions responded using a mortar and heavy artillery shells on the villages of Bashamra and Burj Kass and al-Karia al-Kabira, amid the flight of reconnaissance aircraft in the skies of the region.

SMART is waiting for the response from the Olive Branch factions on questions related to the information in the YPG's statement.

These clashes came in the context of a series of security operations carried out by the YPG of the Syrian Democratic Forces against the Olive Branch factions and the Turkish army, after they gained control of the city of Afrin and all its areas in March.
