Local sources said that the Kurdish forces of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) have stormed the strongholds of the al-Qaeda-affiliated group of al-Nusra Front near Aleppo, and tightened a week-long siege on them.

“Rebels of al-Nusra Front and al-Shamia Front have been besieged by the YPG forces for weeks near Sheikh Maksud district,” media activist Wael Muhammad told ARA news in Aleppo.

“The rebels attacked two YPG checkpoints in an attempts to break the siege, then clashes broke out causing the death and injury of several fighters on both sides," the source said.

The source said that four Kurdish civilians were killed after being hit with mortar shells fired by Nusra militants.
