BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels in the southwestern countryside of Aleppo launched a new attack on the provincial capital this afternoon, a source from the city told Al-Masdar News.

The Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF) reportedly fired several artillery shells and missiles towards the New Aleppo District, causing a number of explosions inside the civilian neighborhoods.

No casualties have been reported thus far.

In response to the jihadist attack, the Syrian Arab Army unleashed a number of missiles towards the Rashiddeen 4 and 5 areas.

This latest attack by the Turkish-backed rebels comes just days after the opposition groups refused to exit the designated buffer zone in the Aleppo, Idlib, Latakia, and Hama provinces.

The Turks had their chance to rein in their proxies. Time for the SAA and Russian Air Force to go in and clear them up.

It’d be even better if Kurds and CJTF/OIR gave a hand.
