BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) launched a swift counter-assault in the northeastern countryside of the Afrin Canton, tonight, targeting the recently lost mountaintop of Jabal Bahsaya.

The YPG forces were able to retake Jabal Bahsaya after a short counter-assault that forced the Turkish-backed rebels to retreat towards the ‘Azaz axis once again.

With Jabal Bahsaya back under their control, the YPG has restored security over several towns that are overlooked by this large mountaintop in the Afrin Canton of northwest Aleppo.

Intense clashes are now ongoing between the YPG and Turkish-backed rebels near the Bulbul District in northern Afrin.
