The sources said: “The Afrin Forces affiliated with SDF have recently increased and expanded their (range of) attacks in northern Aleppo. The attacks show signs that they have acquired new stocks of (advanced) weapons”.

They added: “The attacks by the Afrin Forces included the entire region of the southwest of Afrin to the outskirts of the al-Bab, which also passes through Mar and al-Azzaz”.

“This group of fighters from the SDF have also received large amounts of ammunition, as well as reconnaissance aircraft and devices for night vision”, said the sources.
