BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF) launched a new attack against the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the northern countryside of Aleppo this evening.

According to a Syrian military source nearby, the National Liberation Front attacked the YPG’s positions near the Tal Rifa’at area.

The attack by the Turkish-backed rebels was reportedly conducted from their stronghold in Mare’, which is located just south of the Turkish border.

Heavy clashes are still ongoing at this time, with both sides exchanging heavy artillery and machine gun fire.
