Opposition fighters in Ahrar al-Sham Movement foiled multiple attempts by PKK-affiliated Syria Democratic Forces SDF to occupy new areas in Aleppo western countryside, killing tens of them.
SDF carried out on Monday (June 12) infiltration attempts on the axis of Sama’an Castle near Daret Ezza city in Aleppo western countryside, field sources told Orient Net.
The same sources confirmed that the SDF occupied several points in the area, before Ahrar al-Sham fighters regained the initiative backed by military reinforcements to, killing 30 SDF members in the fierce clashes erupted in which about 16 Ahrar al-Sham members were also killed.
Meanwhile, the PKK-affiliated militias based in the town of Efrin in Aleppo north-western countryside shelled residential buildings in the city of Daret Izza, resulting in civilian casualties.
It is worth mentioning that SDF occupied early last year several areas in Aleppo northern countryside including Tal Rifaat, Mennig and other surrounding villages covered from air by Russian aircraft.
