On the afternoon of September 28, heavy clashes erupted between the Turkish-backed Sham Legion and Majd Legion in the occupied area of Afrin in northern Aleppo.

Step News, a pro-opposition outlet, reported that the clashes took place in the district of Maydanki in the northern part of Afrin.

“The disagreement began when they both wanted to impose their influence and control on a group of houses and lands, which belong to civilians from the city [of Afrin],” a source told Step News explaining the causes of the clashes.

According to local sources, a militant was killed and at least six others were injured during the clashes, which are still ongoing.

The Turkish military and its proxies occupied Afrin in the early months of 2018. Since then, Turkish-backed groups have been looting the area and suppressing the locals in many horrendous ways.

Despite the growing instability in Afrin, the Turkish military is yet to implement any measure to improve the situation. Ankara could be avoiding any possible tension with its own proxies.
