Afrin Liberation Forces Actions Against Turkey

On February 1st, the Turkish army and the jihadist gangs by the names of Sultan Murad, Jabha al-Shamiiya and Ahrar al-Sham carried out a ground incursion backed by heavy weapons on the villagesTil Rihal and Gire Radar of the Shahbah region. The attacks were foiled as a result of the retaliation from our forces. As a result of the clashes that took place, 22 Turkish-backed jihadists were killed and 10’s of jihadists were injured. Our forces seized 2 AK-47’s and a magazine vest. 3 of our fighters were martyred during the clashes.

On the same day, the occupation forces carried out intense shelling on villages in the districts of Shera and Sherawa and the Shahbah region. Drone activity continues over the region.
In a process where the Turkish army are increasing their attacks from all directions on western Kurdistan and northern Syria, our comrades Dilpak Efrin, Nemir Efrin and Bakur Efrin were martyred after putting up a unique fight and resistance.

Comrade Dilpak truly understood the current responsibilities and tasks that he was assigned to and the last duty he was assigned to was as a battalion commander. He was an Arab comrade who has participated in many offensives since the start of the Rojava revolution until the day of today. With his decisive stance he never took a step back against the occupation and performed his duties like a true vanguard in this demanding time period. Comrade Nemir and Comrade Bakur were in the line of duty for freedom and sacrifice as fighters with strong belief and decisiveness. Comrade Nemir carried out his duties as a commander of a unit. With his self-sacrifice and decisiveness he was always a source of morale and force for his fellow comrades. Comrade Bakur also put up a strong fight with decisiveness against the occupation until his last bullet and it was with this style he reached martyrdom.
