BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – Intense clashes broke-out between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Turkish-backed rebels in east Aleppo this evening after a relatively quiet few months.

According to a military source in Damascus, the intense clashes broke out after the Syrian Arab Army fired a couple of mortar shells towards the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) positions at Al-Bab in east Aleppo.

In response, the Turkish-backed rebels fired several missiles towards the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in the nearby town of Tadef, which is just south of Al-Bab.

A flurry of gunfire was then exchanged between the Syrian Arab Army and Turkish-backed rebels near the Al-Bab-Tadef axis, resulting in a fierce engagement this evening.

The clashes are still ongoing at this time; however, the total number of casualties for either party is still unknown.

This is the first major confrontation between the Syrian Arab Army and Turkish-backed rebels at the Al-Bab axis in nearly a year.

Strangely, Turkey also backs Hamas together with Iran…
Hamas is surely Zio, so Iran backs Zios…
Or is there someone totally braindead in his analysis?

Mercenarios Turcos son invasores usurpadores de tierras, realizaron saqueos y se apropiaron de propiedades abandonados. Siria está en todo su derecho de expulsar a los terroristas invasores.

Better head toward the border boys as your days upon this Earth are numbered. Have your $600.00 ready cause Turk Border Guards demand fees to leave and free entry!
