According to our military correspondents, close to SDF-forces, the jihadists operating in the North of Syria announced the creation of a new terrorist group called ‘Kataeb Suar Azaz’ (Battalions of Revolution).
The main aim declared is to shell the positions and to confront the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the city of Afrin and in the territory nearby (Editor’s note: Afrin is a district as well as a city in northern Syria. As a district (mantiqah) of the Syrian Arab Republic, it is part of the Aleppo Governorate. However, since 2012, the Syrian government has lost control of the district, and as the capital of Afrin Canton it is now part of the de-facto autonomous region of Rojava).
Possibly the idea will not succeed as the SDF push deeper inside the territory of ISIS with every passing day.
