Syrian Kurdistan,— Syrian Kurdish guerrillas from the People's Defense Units (YPG) have released the monthly report on clashes in Western Kurdistan-Rojava (northeastern Syria).

For the month of July, the clashes and fighting against al-Qaeda-linked armed groups have resulted in 800 Islamic militants being killed.

YPG guerrillas also stated that 80 of their own Kurdish guerrillas have lost their life, while over 700 civilian Kurds have been kidnapped by armed gangs.

YPG Media Center held its press conference in Girkę Legę where it shared its information and reports with journalists.

YPG Media Spokesperson, Rędűr Xelil,www.ekurd.net confirmed that in the last month as well as al-Nusra Front and Islamic State of Iraq and Syria clashes involved some battalions of the Free Syrian Army and smaller groups.

As for the over 700 civilians who have been abducted by these armed gangs, Xelil said that no verified information is available as to their fate or whereabouts.

Meanwhile the al-Qaeda loyalists attacked a mainly Kurdish town in Western Kurdistan sparking fighting in which 18 people were killed, two of them ambulance crew, a watchdog said on Saturday.

 

The assault on the strategic border Kurdish town of Serę Kaniyę (Ras al-Ain in Arabic), from which the jihadists were expelled by Kurdish militiamen in July, sparked an exodus of civilians into neighbouring Turkey, an activist said.
