Members of the US-backed Kurdish separatist group YPG were involved in fierce clashes with the Erdogan-regime linked terrorist groups in the northern countryside of the Syrian province of Aleppo.

On Sunday, members of the Sultan Murad Division and Osod Al Sharqiya (Lions of the East Army) attacked YPG positions at Al Jabha Al Shamiya front.

During the clashes, 3 vehicles were destroyed, while dozens of the combatants fell on both sides.

According to jihadist online sources, Sultan Murad Division and Osod Al Sharqiya attacked with a large convoy, consisting of 45 vehicles, among them trucks, vans and bulldozers, many of them carrying 23mm guns.

All three groups are said to be fighting ISIS, however, they are all hostile to the Syrian Army.

The move comes right in time of the illegal Turkish invasion of the northwestern Syrian province of Idleb.

It is expected to see a sharp increase of Turkmen attacks on YPG and the Syrian Army positions in the nearby future.

In it noteworthy that in the past, both the YPG and the Turkmen division received a considerable amount of  US support.
