Fighters from the Syrian National Army, a Turkish-backed rebel group in northern Syria, have been holding sit-in demonstrations for two days, demanding that Ankara pay their salaries, according to the Syrian Observatory For Human Rights (SOHR), a war monitor.
The fighters have cut off the roads in the towns of Ras Al-Ain and Tal Abyad with tires, SOHR said.
Meanwhile, SOHR sources reported that violent clashes involving machineguns took place on March 5, 2020 in the Turkish-controlled village of Kafifeh in the western countryside of Tal Abyad.
According to the sources, clashes took place between the al-Majd Corps and al-Shamal Brigade after a dispute over the distribution of booty among them. Six people were killed.
Turkish forces intervened to break up the clashes.
