PKK affiliated PYD kills civilians in Syria's Aleppo

PKK AFFILIATED PYD KILLS CIVILIANS IN SYRIAS ALEPPO

PKK/PYD terrorist group killed three civilians and injured six others in Syria's northern Aleppo province.

At least three civilians were killed and six others injured in an attack on Sunday by PKK/PYD terrorist group in Syria's northern Aleppo province, a pro-opposition Syrian civil defense official said.

The fatalities occurred when PKK/PYD terrorists attacked the opposition-held Marea town, Alaa Nima told Anadolu Agency.

He said a pregnant woman was among the victims while three children were among those injured in the attack.

"PYD has been targeting the town for a long time with a variety of weapons," Nima said, asserting that Sunday's attack targeted residential areas.

Meanwhile, Abdulfattah Hussein, a member of Syria's Local Coordination Committee (LCC), said that the Syrian opposition retaliated to the PKK/PYD attacks.

A number of opposition fighters were transferred to Turkey for treatment after critical injuries in clashes with the terrorist group in the western part of Marea, Hussein said.

PKK/PYD had captured Tal Rifaat city as a launching point of their attack against the opposition-held areas of Marea and Azaz in Aleppo province.
