30 Ankara-Backed Terrorists Killed, Wounded in Afrin

The Kurdish forces killed and wounded over 30 Ankara-affiliated militants during military operations against the Turkish army in Afrin.

The Kurdish-language Hawar news website quoted the Kurdish units as saying on Thursday that they had detonated two roadside bombs on the way of a convoy of the Turkish army and Ferqat al-Hamzeh terrorist group in Trendeh road.

They added that 10 Turkish army forces and affiliated militants were killed and over 20 others were injured in the operations.

After the attack, the reconnaissance drones of the Turkish army flew over the region for 6 hours.

Afrin is still the scene of clashes between the Kurdish forces and the Turkish army despite being occupied for several months by Ankara.

Last week, Hawar news had reported that a number of Turkish soldiers and Ankara-backed militants, including a senior commander, were killed in the Kurdish militia attacks in Afrin region in Northwestern Aleppo.

It added that Abdul Razaq al-Bokour, a commander of Ankara-backed militants, was killed in the Kurdish units’ bomb attack on the Turkish troops and allied militants in Mobata region in Afrin.

“The Kurdish militias’ operation against the Turkish troops and allied militants has been codenamed as Olive Rage,” it said.

In the meantime, a bomb-laden motorcycle went off on a road to Kafr Jinah in Shera region that is usually patrolled by the Turkish forces and allied militants, killing a Turkish soldier and injuring a militant.
