Many killed and wounded in clashes between the “National Army” militia and local militants in northeastern Aleppo.
A militants was killed and 6 others were wounded, in clashes that broke out between 2 armed groups loyal to Turkey, in the village of Al-Burj in the countryside of Al-Bab city, northeast of Aleppo, due to disputes over the seizure of houses in the village.
Sources of the Syrian Documentation Center reported that great tension had prevailed in the village since Monday morning, coinciding with the implementation of raids by the “National Army”, supported by Turkey, to seize houses and areas of the village’s lands.
The sources pointed out that a dispute occurred between the faction and local militants from the village, also supported by Turkey, which soon turned into clashes that broke out between the 2 sides, resulting in the death of 1 person and the wounding of 2 others from the village’s militants, in exchange for the injury of 4 of the “National Army”.
The clashes stopped with the arrival of large military reinforcements to the “National Army” that surrounded the village and imposed a curfew that lasted for several hours, during which several houses in the village were raided and people arrested, including the sister of the killed militant.
It’s noteworthy that the events of the village of Al-Burj coincide with another security tension in the city of Al-Bab as well, due to differences between the 2 factions of Al-Ahfad army and Al-Hamza Division, which reached the point of announcing a mobilization threatening a new outbreak of fighting between them, as a result of the arrest of the “Jaish” checkpoint, as the militants from the “Hamza Division” and taken to an unknown destination, which was met by the division by launching a campaign of arrests of a number of the “grandchildren” militants throughout the city.
