The village of Baflun was subjected to missile strikes for years before the aggression due to its location in the confrontation line with the militias affiliated with Turkey and its proximity to the city of Azaz, and in May 2016 a citizen was killed and a number of citizens were injured as a result of the shelling by the Muslim Brotherhood militia from the nearby city of Azaz.

During the Turkish aggression on Afrin region, the invading forces tried to control it, because it contained one of the most important ruling hills, and it enjoyed an important geographical location, due to its height and its direct supervision over the city of Azaz, the village, and its occupation meant fiery control of the nearby villages.
