Las tropas de las “Unidades de Protección Popular” (YPG), mayoritariamente conformadas por kurdos, recuperó el control de un pueblo en el norte del Canton de Afrin durante el día, luego de haberlo perdido brevemente a manos de rebeldes respaldados por Turquía.

De acuerdo a activistas pro-YPG, sus fuerzas recuperaron Qarneh, localizado dentro del estratégico distrito de Bulbul, matando a varios rebeldes y capturando numeroso equipo en el intertanto.
Entre los rebeldes caídos se cuenta el comandante que lideró el asalto original.

Este avance de las YPG coincide con su rechazo a un fuerte asalto de los pro-turcos en la estratégica montaña de Jabal Basraya, en el noreste de Afrin.

Respaldados por fuero de artillería pesada del Ejército de Turquía, los combatientes afiliados al “Escudo del Éufrates” intentaron repetidamente romper las defensas de las YPG. Sin embargo sus esfuerzos resultaron infructuosos, habiendo sido rechazados duramente por las YPG.

Se espera que las milicias pro-turcas intenten un nuevo ataque en las próximas horas, ya que el control de Jabal Basraya es una alta prioridad para el Alto Comando del Ejército Turco que se encuentra guiando la Operación “Rama de Olivo”, con la que intentan obtener el control del cantón kurdo.
