BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – A number of clashes broke out this past weekend between the Turkish Army and rebel forces in northern Aleppo.

According to opposition activists, the Turkish Army, alongside the Free Syrian Army (FSA), launched a large-scale operation to arrest rebel fighters committing crimes in the Afrin region.

However, during the operation, Turkish Army and their allies clashed with members of the Sharqiyah Martyrs Brigade after the former raided their positions in Afrin.

The aforementioned rebel group was accused by locals of looting and kidnapping across the the Afrin region.

As a result of the looting and kidnapping, the Turkish military has intervened to end the corruption that plagued the Afrin region.

In the video below, the Turkish military and their allies can be seen clashing with the rebels accused of looting and kidnapping:

At the end of the day, for all the accusations back and forth, the Turks intend to seize Syrian territory for good and box the Kurds in. Am I wrong?

The Turk land grabbers pretend to come to Afrin’s rescue as white knights. LOL. The looting ghazi of the Sharqiyah Martyrs Brigade were brought there as mercenaries by the Sultan 2.0. Turkey is responsible of all their depredations of the Syrian people.
