Unknown gunmen attack Turkish post in Syria’s Tel Abyad

TEL ABYAD, Syria (North Press) – Unidentified individuals targeted on Friday a joint military post of Turkish forces and their affiliated Military Police faction in the countryside of Tel Abyad, northern Syria. The attack resulted in the killing of one militant and the injury of two others.

A military source told North Press that individuals riding motorcycles attacked with light machine guns a joint post of the Turkish forces and the Military Police near the village of Hamam al-Turkman, southeast of Tel Abyad.

This direct attack is considered a turning point for the residents of those areas which are controlled by Turkish forces and Turkish-backed armed opposition factions, aka the Syrian National Army (SNA).

The attack resulted in the killing of one militant of the Military Police and the injury of two others, whereas the Turkish forces retreated with their armored vehicles from the scene of the attack immediately, the source added.

The source noted the injured were transferred to a hospital in Tel Abyad at once, and the road where the attack occurred was closed.

On Oct. 23, unidentified gunmen riding a motorcycle attacked with light weapons a military vehicle of Hamza Division affiliated with the SNA in the southern countryside of Tel Abyad, wounding three militants.
