The Kurdish-language Hawar News reported 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.
Local sources reported on Wednesday that one of the notorious commanders of a Turkey-backed militant group was found dead in Afrin region in Northwestern Aleppo amid growing insecurity in occupied regions in Northern Syria.
The sources said that the body of Omar al-Kadro, a commander of the 51st Brigade affiliated to the Free Army, was found in the town of Jandaris in Southwestern Afrin.
The sources went on to say that militants of the Turkey-led Euphrates Shield were kept on alert five days ago after al-Kadro was kidnapped by unknown assailants from the main base of the Euphrates Shield forces in the town of al-Bab in Northeastern Aleppo.
They further said that heavy infighting erupted between the 51th Brigade and Sultan Morad Firqa in Akhtarin region after the attackers kidnapped al-Kadro.
Infighting and assassination of militant groups’ commanders in Northwestern Syria has started a fresh wave panic covering the terrorist front.
