Kurdish snipers managed to reduce the numbers of ISIS militants in only 24 hours. It was reported that at least 13 militants were killed by Kurdish snipers.
Snipers from the YPG, supported by fellow fighters from the Kurdish Women’s Protection Units (YPG), took position at the top of a hill in the eastern suburb of Jarablus city in northern Aleppo.
The Kurdish officer pointed out that the operation was focused on the Tahtani district of Jarablus, “where an ISIS command center is located”.
The Kurdish fighters have recently captured several hills in the vicinity of Jarablus subsequent to clashes with ISIS.
Jarablus city is deemed a main bastion for ISIS militants in northern Syria. It has served as a transit point for ISIS foreign militants over more than two years for its strategic location on the Turkish border.
