The Kurdish forces have killed a notorious leader of Al-Nusra Front terrorists in fierce clashes with them in the northern province of Aleppo on Wednesday.

At least seven terrorists, including a senior Al-Nusra Front commander, were killed in fierce fighting in Aleppo province, an informed source announced. 

"In the morning, a group of militants fired mortars and heavy weapons at several villages in the vicinity of the towns of Minaq and A’zaz and attacked the Kurdish militia there; fierce fighting is underway there," the source added.

He reiterated that the Kurdish fighters are fighting two other terrorist groups in Afrin canton located in Syria’s Aleppo province.

In a relevant development on Tuesday, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) engaged in heavy fighting with the ISIS terrorists in the Northern part of Aleppo province and inflicted a heavy death toll on the militants.

The clashes erupted between the Kurdish fighters and the terrorists in Hajiz al-Shat and Villa Ghazi near the town of Azaz in the Northern Aleppo which claimed the lives of several terrorists and damaged their military hardware.

Also on March 26, the Kurdish forces thwarted an attempt by the Takfiri terrorists to capture Sheikh al-Maqsoud district in the city of Aleppo.

The Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham terrorists tried to take control of Sheikh al-Maqsoud area, but they were forced to retreat by the Kurdish fighters.

The Takfiri terrorists sustained heavy casualties and losses in tough battle with the Kurdish forces.

Most parts of Aleppo province have been purged of terrorists who are now engaged in increasing internal clashes in the limited stretches of lands that are still under their control.

Earlier in Aleppo province, the Ahrar al-Sham and Jund al-Aqsa terrorist groups operating in the Northern province of Aleppo engaged in fierce clashes with each other after the death of a senior ISIS ringleader, reported by FNA.
