The escalation between the two factions evoked horror and fears among residents.

On Tuesday, five members of the Turkish-backed Sham Legion faction were wounded as a result of violent infighting between two groups of the same faction in the countryside of Afrin.

The city of Afrin and its environs have been under the control of the Turkish-backed opposition factions since March 2018.

However, the areas under the control of the Turkish-backed factions have been witnessing a state of security chaos, amid explosions and continuous infighting among these factions.
