Six Turkish soldiers and mercenaries killed in HRE actions in northern Syria

Three soldiers of the Turkish army and three jihadist mercenaries have been killed in HRE actions in Mare and al-Bab. The resistance group declares that it is exercising its legitimate right to self-defence.

The Afrin Liberation Forces (HRE) have once again struck a Turkish base in northern Syria. According to the resistance group, actions against the Turkish occupation forces and their jihadist mercenaries took place in Mare and al-Bab as part of the legitimate right to self-defence.

In the HRE action on 11 August in Mare, a jeep was destroyed, three mercenaries were killed and two others were injured. On 12 August, three soldiers of the Turkish army were killed, and five soldiers were wounded in an action against a military base in al-Bab.

Last week, one commander and five soldiers of the Turkish army were killed and eleven others wounded in HRE actions against Turkish military bases in al-Bab, Shera, Afrin and Azaz.

The Hêzên Rizgariya Efrînê (HRE) was founded in 2018 after the occupation of Afrin by Turkey. With the aim of liberating the region from the occupiers, the resistance group carries out targeted actions against the Turkish troops and their jihadist mercenaries. The displaced people from Afrin are subjected to constant attacks. Most recently, nine people were injured in a Turkish drone attack in Tel Rifat on 4 August, including six children and young people.
