Aleppo

The Turkey-backed militants continued attacking Kurdish militia in Northeastern Aleppo on Wednesday as possibility rises for direct confrontation between the Syrian and Turkish armies.

The Arabic-language website of the Kurdish news website, Hawar news, reported that the Ankara-backed militants attacked the positions of al-Bab Military Council in the villages of Albuhij and Bou Qaz near the town of al-Arimah East of the town al-Bab in Northeastern Aleppo regardless of the Syrian Army's presence in the region.

It further said that gunmen of al-Bab Military Council managed to repel the Ankara forces' attacks.

According to Fars News Agancy, the center further said that the Ankara-backed militants launched heavy shelling on the small towns of Jokhar Kabir East on Manbij, al-Mohsenli West of Manbij and the villages of al-Baraziyah West of the town of al-Arimah and also al-Koridiyah region in Northeastern Aleppo.

Military expert said that the Ankara-backed militants' continued attacks on the Kurds regardless of the Syrian Arm's presence in the region have increased the possibility of direct confrontation between the Damascus forces and militants as well as the Turkish army that is backing the latter.

Abu Ahmad Homsi, a notorious commander of al-Zinki, was killed in the infighting near the town of Dar al-Izzah, a field source said, adding that tens of civilians have also been killed or wounded in the clashes between rival terrorists.

Tahrir al-Sham seized the village of Basratoun in Western Aleppo and entered the strategic town of Dar al-Izzah following the clashes.
