AFRIN, Syria – The Turkish military and their Syrian proxies captured the town of Shinjel in the northwest of Afrin canton from Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) forces in a quick manner yesterday, as reported by FRN.
However, last night the YPG launched a counterattack and recaptured Shinjel from their enemy.
It took several hours for the YPG to recapture the town.
Meanwhile, intense clashes are occurring between the YPG and Turkish-backed forces across all fronts in Afrin.
Although many predicted a complete rout of Kurdish forces, it demonstrates that by no means they will give up on Afrin so easily.
