In pictures: Syrian Kurds mourn the loss of fighters in defense of Afrin
Kurdish fighters are laid to rest in Qamishli.
The mostly-Kurdish People's Protection Units had sent fighters to Kurdish controlled-Afrin to resist Turkey's three-month assault.
On Sunday, proxy fighters raised the Turkish flag in Afrin's city center.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the number of Kurdish fighters killed at 1,500 on Sunday.
