Aleppo: Shots fired at Kurdish neighborhood

KurdWatch, February 29, 2016—Between February 16 and 24, 2016, armed units from the Syrian opposition fired at positions of the People’s Defense Units (YPG) of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) in the predominantly Kurdish neighborhood of Sheikh Maqsood in Aleppo. Numerous videos placed on YouTube by the Syrian opposition show how the neighborhood was fired at with self‑made rockets. Since the rockets had no steering system, many residential buildings were hit. According to the YPG twenty‑four civilians were killed and two hundred and fifty injured.
