An attack on the headquarters of the “Hamza” division faction north of Aleppo.
A military headquarters of the “Hamza” Division was subjected to an armed attack by unknown militants in the vicinity of the city of “Al-Bab” northeast of Aleppo, which is under the control of the Turkish forces and its factions.
Sources of the Syrian Documentation Center reported that unknown militants attacked the headquarters of the faction, located on the road to the “Abu Zendin” crossing east of the city of “Al-Bab,” on Monday night, which led to the killing of one of the headquarters guards, named Alaa Abboud, who was from the city of “Palmyra” and moved with the Ankara faction towards northern Syria.
The source stated that the targeted headquarter is a farm that the militants seized and turned into a military headquarter for them, adding that the party behind the attack hasn’t been identified, indicating that the attackers belong to one of the Turkish factions in the area.
The source explained that recently there has been an escalation in disputes and confrontations between the Ankara factions in the area, and as a result of this direct confrontations have been repeated among them, amid a struggle for influence and control of smuggling barriers, imposing royalties and other violations, which increases the possibilities of the involvement of members of a faction in the attack on the headquarter.
It’s noteworthy that the city of “Al-Bab” recently witnessed a series of clashes between the factions and explosions of unknown source, where a suicide bomber blew himself up in a funeral held at the headquarters of the Turkish “Sultan Murad” faction a few days ago in the village of “Tal Al-Hawa” in the city of “Al-Bab”, which led to the killing of the leader “Abdul Razzaq Al-Khalil”, and the wounding of 12 others who were at the funeral.
