BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – Despite the political disagreements between the Syrian government and Kurdish PYD, the former will continue to allow YPG units to reinforce the Afrin Canton from within their territory in Aleppo.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Kurdish YPG have been allowed to consistently reinforce the Afrin Canton from the government-held parts of Aleppo.
Reinforcements from the YPG traveled along the shared Hasakah-Aleppo Highway to the city of Aleppo, where they eventually made their way to the Afrin Canton in the northwestern part of the province.
The military source added that the YPG has sent several hundred reinforcements to the Afrin Canton over the last 48 hours.
On Friday, the Turkish Minister of Defense stated after his meeting in Moscow that his forces were going to invade the Afrin Canton, despite the Syrian government’s disapproval and warnings.
