Kurdish Fighters Marching on Militant Centers in Syria's Aleppo

The YPG forces pushed the militant groups back from their positions in Ashrafiyeh and took full control over Istiqameh Mosque, Younes Saba'avi school and several residential building blocks in a several-hour tough battle.

The YPG has deployed its fighters only 50 meters from another key neighborhood of Bani Zeid that is known as the largest stronghold of the militant groups in the city.

Reports said on Monday that the Turkish Army's artillery units targeted concentration centers of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Northern part of Aleppo in a move to slow down the Kurdish fighters' advances against the terrorist groups near its border with Syria's Aleppo.

The Turkish artillery shelled the Kurdish strongholds in the newly-liberated town of Tal Rifat and the strategic Minaq airbase in the Northern part of Aleppo to prevent rapid advances of pro-government forces against Ankara-backed militants.

The SDF that is comprised of mainly Kurdish fighters as well as a few hundred Syrian Arab dissident forces have received trainings from the US and have been provided with scanty US-coalition air support in their battles in Raqqa province in Northeastern Syria; but in Northern and Northwestern battlefronts, they have been operating alongside the YPG and received the Russian air backup in their Aleppo wars that started with the conquest of Tishrin Dam on the Euphrates early in February.

Assisted by the Syrian army - that has along with popular forces and Hezbollah conquered almost all militant-held regions in Eastern, Southern, Western and Northwestern Aleppo province - and Russian air support, the Kurdish forces fighting against the terrorists in North-Northeast Aleppo province have been making striking advances against the al-Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham and ISIL terrorists in February.

Last week, YPG and SDF fighters prevailed over the terrorists in the highly strategic city of Tal Rifat in Northern Aleppo and captured the city.

The YPG, who enjoyed the Russian air backup, prevailed the terrorists' positions from the Western direction and shook hand with the Kurdish units of the SDF who entered the town from the North.
