The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) on Saturday called on the families of Turkey-backed rebels that attacked Kurdish positions in Ain Daqna on 17 July to pick up the bodies of their fighters killed in the recent clashes.
“We in the People’s Protection Units (YPG) have asked the families of those killed in the attack to come to collect the bodies of their dead,” the YPG said.
“But the Turkish state and their loyal battalions [rebel groups] prevent the people from coming to collect the bodies, and we in the YPG repeat again the demand from the families to receive their bodies,” the YPG said.
Moreover, the YPG released the names of the 10 rebels that were killed. They included Subhi Hamsho bin Abdul Salam, Musa Shehadeh bin Hassan, Mustafa Musa bin Abdul Sattar, Ahmed Al-Ahmad bin Yasser, Ahmed bin Zakour Hamid, Yehia Tantoura bin Mohammed, Jamal Misto bin Ahmed, Ibrahim Idris Ben Idris, Ali Hayani bin Taher, and Saleh Abdul Razzaq al-Baker.
