PKK-affiliated YPG militiamen shelled on Wednesday (March 18) civilian-populated areas in Aleppo countryside, killing and injuring civilians, Orient correspondent said.

YPG artillery shells targeted on Wednesday afternoon densely populated neighborhoods in Afrin city, killing four civilians and injuring 15 others.

On Saturday, an improvised explosive device (IED) exploded in a car in Rajo street in Afrin city, injuring a man and a child.

Last month, YPG rockets targeted al-Itihad school in Afrin city, killing Yasin Hemrawi, a displaced student from Damascus countryside, and injuring 12 others.

Several explosions have blasted the densely populated opposition-held areas in northern Syria, including areas controlled by the Turkey-backed opposition factions.
