Terrorist from the YPG/PKK attempted to infiltrate soldiers on the front lines north of Syria on Monday, but the Syrian National Army (SNA) repelled their efforts.
PKK/YPG militants attempted to penetrate the northern countryside of Aleppo province’s Marea district, which is currently held by the opposition.
After that, the terrorists were fought off by the SNA troops, who drove them back.
According to local security officials, the fighting resulted in casualties among the YPG/PKK terrorists.
It has been over two years since Turkish security forces began patrolling Tal Rifat, a YPG/PKK stronghold that lies just 18 kilometers from the Turkish border and on the frontline of the Euphrates Shield zone.
From Manbij and Tal Rifat in Syria, the YPG/PKK terror group regularly targets the Syrian towns of Jarabulus, Afrin, and Azaz.
When the YPG/PKK terrorists attempt to infiltrate Syrian opposition positions from areas where the terror group was supposed to withdraw under the agreements with the United States and Russia, they often target Turkish security forces providing security in the areas of Operation Euphrates Shield, Olive Branch, and Peace Spring.
To prevent the formation of a terror corridor in northern Syria, Ankara has carried out three successful anti-terror operations across its border since 2016. Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019) are the three.
The PKK, a terrorist group designated by Türkiye, the United States, and the European Union, has been responsible for the murders of over 40,000 people, including women, children, and babies, throughout its 35-year terror campaign against Türkiye. The YPG is the Syrian branch of the PKK terrorist organization.
