BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – According to residents from the government-held town of Al-Zahra’a in northern Aleppo, Kurdish reinforcements are still moving through government lines to reach the Afrin Canton.

This latest claim by residents in Al-Zahra’a come just two days after similar reports were released by Syrian military personnel in the Aleppo Governorate.

While the Kurdish PYD (political wing of the YPG) have criticized Damascus for not taking a harsher stance against the Turkish-led incursion into northern Syria, the Syrian government continues to allow the YPG to reinforce and resupply Afrin through their territory in Aleppo.

Without access to the government roads, the YPG would be effectively besieged in Afrin, with no way to resupply this region.
