During its recent operation on ISIS gangs, YPG uncovered Turkish flags, plane tickets showing of gangs who traveled through Turkey on the way to Syria, Turkish translations of the Koran, and the list of Turkish gang members who participated in the attack against YPG positions in Til Xenzir.
YPG’s Commander Rubar Qamishlo enters its 28th day as YPG deals major blows to ISIS gangs. Several gang members were killed during yesterday’s operations in the villages of Ummud Tavaric, Xerkan, Hecer, Nestel, Dixalîyê and Hevasi. YPG also uncovered many documents belonging to the gangs and our agency managed to get a hold of these documents.
GANGS LEFT MANY DOCUMENTS BEHIND
As YPG operations deal major blows to ISIS, gang members escape in hurry and leave important documents behind. In the recent operation, YPG uncovered phones, phone cards, walkie-talkies, passports, identity cards, organizational documents and books. YPG guerillas also found Turkish and ISIS flags hung next to one another in several houses previously occupied by the gangs.
TURKISH GANGS WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE TIL XENZIR ATTACK
One of the most important documents uncovered by YPG is the list of 17 Turkish gang members who participated in the ISIS attack on Til Xenzir which is located 25 km to the west of Serêkanîyê. Last winter in Til Xenzir, YPG commanders were stating that the attack came from the Turkish side of the border and the feeing gangs took refuge in Turkish military posts.
Here are the names of Turkish gangs who are in the Katiba Faruk brigade that is based in Raqqa and loyal to ISIS: Ebu Meshep Tirki, Ebdulhadi Tirki, cindil Tirki, Xettap Tirki, Mervan Tirki, Hekrema Tirki, Kedema Tirki, Ahmed Seyyaf Tirki, Hasan Basri Tirki, Zerkevani Tirki, Ebu Hesen Tirki, Ebu Musa Tirki, Ebu Yusuf Tirki, Ebu Muhas Tirki, Ebdul Hadi Tirki, Ebu Hezife Tirki, Ebu Meshef Tirki and Ebu Abbas.
ISIS documents also indicate that, among the gangs who attacked Til Xenzir, 2 were ammunition bearers and 9 were health experts.
