Late on April 28, heavy clashes broke out between Kurdish forces and Turkish-backed militants in the northern countryside of Syria’s Aleppo.

The clashes took place in the outskirts of the villages of Kafr Khasher and Kafr Kalbin, which are located to the south of the Turkish-occupied town of Azaz. According to opposition sources, the clashes erupted when a group of Kurdish fighters attempted to infiltrate the defenses of Turkish-backed militants near Kafr Kalbin.

The sources said that the infiltration attempt was a complete failure. Nine Kurdish fighters were allegedly killed as a result of the clashes.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a militant of the Turkish-backed al-Shamiya Front, a faction of the Syrian National Army, was also killed in the clashes. At least four other militants were injured.

The clashes came to an end in the early hours of April 29. The Turkish artillery then shelled the Kurdish-held towns of Ayn Daqnah and Minaq. Kurdish sources also reported a Turkish “drone strike” on a hell located near the town of Tell Rifaat.

Kurdish factions in northern Aleppo have been stepping up their attacks on Turkish forces. Earlier this week, Kurdish fighters destroyed three vehicles in the southern part of the occupied area of Afrin guided missiles.
