One spy killed and two others arrested in SDF Operation Oath
An operation by the SDF targeted a cell is involved in espionage acts against AANES employees, military headquarters, and military sites and tunnels.
The Media Center of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) released a statement providing details of an operation against the hotbed of a Turkish-affiliated cell.
Accordingly, SDF special forces raided last Thursday (August 11) a hotbed of a cell affiliated with the Turkish intelligence (MIT) in Abu Arzala neighborhood, Tal Brak town.
“The cell consists of three members affiliated with the Turkish intelligence MIT, and they are: Ali Muhammed al-Muhammed, Mahmoud Muhammed al-Muhammed, and Aziz Muhammed al-Muhammed.
The cell is involved in espionage acts about the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) employees, military headquarters, and military sites and tunnels. The cell has caused the martyrdom of many of our comrades and fighters,” SDF said.
During the raid operation, one of the cell members, called Aziz, refused the call for safe surrender, and he resisted our forces, which led to his death. While the others (Mahmoud and Ali) were arrested.
This operation is part of Operation Oath launched by our forces on July 31, against the spy networks affiliated with the Turkish intelligence MIT, following the escalated aggressions by the Turkish occupation on the regions of North-East Syria,” the statement said.
SDF noted that some pro-(MIT) Facebook pages like (Al-Khabour) have posted about the killing of the mercenary Aziz, and it announced him as a martyr.
