AFRIN, Syria – An outpost for the Syrian forces near Afrin in the country’s northwest was hit by an airstrike conducted by a Turkish jet killing six fighters – including a colonel – and injuring two others, according to Al-Masdar News.

The attack occurred on a gathering of pro-government fighters stationed along the road linking Afrin to Nubl and al-Zahraa towns.

The road is extensively used by thousands of civilians who fled the battles in Afrin, particularly after the Turkish-backed militants managed to entirely seize the city, the Al-Masdar report explained.

It is believed that this strike was in revenge because last night Syrian pro-government forces attacked Turkish military positions near the terrorist-held town of Anadan in western Aleppo countryside. Further details of this can be read here.
