Sources from inside Afrin noted that the Turkish occupation has settled 15 families of the mercenaries in Kurzele village related to Afrin two days before, and that in the houses of the people who were forced to leave their homes because of the Turkish occupation.

This resettlement is part of the systematic policies followed by the Turkish occupation in order to change the demography of the area through the agreements that it holds with Russia, in addition to bringing families from the Syrian interior and settling them in the homes of Afrin people.

It is noteworthy that ANHA agency had published a report earlier in which it indicated that 1,139 families of the mercenaries were settled in Afrin after Turkey's agreement with Russia in al-Gouta and the vicinity of Damascus.
