The predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) – backed by Jaysh Al-Thuwwar of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) – have reportedly entered the village of Kafr Naya in northern Aleppo this morning after advancing to the strategic town of Tal Rifa’at the day before.

Last week, the Syrian Arab Army’s 154th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – alongside Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF), Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), Liwaa Al-Badr (Iraqi paramilitary), and Kata’eb Hezbollah (Iraqi paramilitary) – captured Kafr Naya from the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen, and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah.

However, during their push south towards Tannourah, the Islamist rebels reportedly fought their way back into Kafr Naya, where they were able to establish full control of this village after a short battle.

If Kafr Naya is captured by the YPG and SDF, the Islamist rebels will no long have a presence in Al-Zahra’s northern countryside; thus, creating a new front-line boreder between the Kurdish and government forces in northern Aleppo.

The situation continues to get progressively worse for the Turkish-backed Islamist rebels, as they are once again being kicked out of another village in northern Aleppo by the Kurdish forces.
