The Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) announced on November 10 that the military commander of the Turkish-backed Northern Brigade was killed by their cells in “a revenge operation.”

In an official statement, the Kurdish guerrilla group revealed that the commander was targeted in the Turkish-occupied part of northern Aleppo, known as the Euphrates Shield (ES) region.

“On November 9, our forces carried out a special operation against a commander of the Northern Brigade’s mercenaries in the village of Shamarin … As a result, the commander was killed along with a number of mercenaries and another was injured,” the ALF’s statement reads.

The ALF didn’t name the slain Turkish-backed commander. However, local sources identify him as Abdel Halim Rahim, aka Abu Ahmad.

According to the sources, Abu Ahmad was killed when an improvised explosive-device (IED) planted under his pick-up truck exploded.

The assassination of Abu Ahmad is an example of the poor security situation in Turkish-occupied territory in northern Syria, where attacks are taking place almost on a daily basis.
