(NSFW) SDF Thermal Sniper Drops Turkish-Backed Soldiers in Northern Syria

This thermal scope footage records a sniper shooting at what are reported to be militants supported by Turkey/Turkiye. The action occurs near the town of Ayn Issa, halfway between the Syrian-Turkish border and the regional capital, Raqqa. Because casualties are depicted, viewer discretion is advised.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are a confederation of smaller pro-Kurd militias such as YPG and YKK, who are often trained and led by Western/NATO elements, and in particular the US, to take the fight to ISIS while fighting for sovereignty.
