On Tuesday evening, four people, including a child, were severely injured in the village of Sukariya, 13km west of Tal Abyad. Members of Faylaq al-Majd of the Turkish-backed "Syrian National Army" stormed the village and threw several bombs, in an attempt to forcibly rob sheep belonging to village resident Ibrahim Musa al-Ali.
A local source from the village of Sukariya told North-Press that members of Faylaq al-Majd stormed the village using pickup trucks and threatened and intimidated the people to hand over the sheep.
"After the reluctance of the people, skirmishes with light weapons took place between them and the militants of Faylaq al-Majd; the latter threw bombs at the people, injuring four. The injuries were critical and they were transported to Turkish territory," the source said.
The source, which preferred not to be named, stated that the members of Turkish-backed National Army's groups who control the villages conduct looting operations from time to time, that the area undergoes a state of complete chaos, and that it lacks the most basic elements of safety.
Earlier, On the 2nd of last January, members of Faylaq al-Majd killed Ammar Al-Hajji, a driver in Tal Abyad, after they attempted to steal his car.
During December of last year, infighting broke out among Turkish-backed armed groups in the city of Sere Kaniye (Ras al-Ain), following disputes related to one group looting in another group's territory.
Likewise, in the same month, Turkish-backed armed opposition groups forcefully seized the wheat of people of al-Manajir town and its surrounding villages in the southern countryside of Sere Kaniye, amid the anger and objections of the people.
