BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 P.M.) – The rebel group Faylaq Al-Rahman has begun purchasing bases in the Afrin region of northwest Aleppo, pro-opposition activists reported on Monday.

According to their reports, Faylaq Al-Rahman purchased the Brigade 135 base in Afrin from their allies in the Al-Motassem Brigade of the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Faylaq Al-Rahman was previously headquartered in the East Ghouta region of Damascus; however, their defeat at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forced them to relocated to the Turkish-held areas.

Since moving to northern Syria, Faylaq Al-Rahman has attempted to establish a foothold in the Afrin region that was once controlled by the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG).

Purchasing stolen assets with stolen assets, they have blood on their hands and shall inherit due justice soon. The sins of their fathers (Kurdish clans) haunt any future peace, reconciliation or hope of regaining their earnings and assets in Syria. They have left shelter in their greed in an evil dream as nothing more than vassals of a transnational criminal cabal by choice of the elders.
