FSA fighters targeted on Sunday a military headquarters for the separatist SDF militia in al-Boweihej town, east of Aleppo, with mortar shells, which killed nine of them, including a female filed commander, Hawar Kilis Operations Room (HKOR) said in a statement on Twitter.
Heavy clashes erupted on the fronts of Aleppo eastern countryside between FSA fighters and SDF militants.
This comes after the Kurdish-dominated SDF, through an affiliated military council called Manbij Military Council, had handed over the control of a number of villages, on the front lines with the Turkey-backed Euphrates Shield forces, to Assad regime after an agreement with the Russians. The villages are located on the western side of Manbij city.
Turkey-backed FSA fighters have recently wrested control over al-Bab after months-long fighting with ISIS terrorists.
