On May 20, the Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) claimed responsibility for a recent raid that targeted a position of the Syrian National Army (SNA) near the town of Bosoufane in the southern part of Turkish-occupied Afrin.
The Kurdish guerrilla group shared footage of the daring raid, which took place early on May 19. The footage, that was filmed with a thermal gun sight, shows Kurdish fighters infiltrating the SNA position then clashing with Turkish-backed militants.
The ALF video also includes footage of a successful attack on a pickup truck of the SNA with an improvised explosive device.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, five fighters of the SNA’s al-Sham Corps were killed in the ALF’s raid.
In the course of the raid, ALF fighters captured three AK-type assault rifles, a PKC-type machine gun as well as a night-vision goggles.
The Turkish military responded to the raid by shelling Kurdish-held areas south of Afrin, where government troops and Russian forces are present. Four Syrian soldiers were reportedly injured.
Bosoufane attack highlights the incompetency of Turkish-backed militants, who are yet to address the threat posed by the ALF and other Kurdish guerrilla groups.
