BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – A group of Turkish-backed rebels were the recent victims of a powerful ambush that was carried out by a sleeper cell loyal to the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) this week.

According to YPG activists in northern Syria, they activated their sleeper cell in the southern countryside of the Afrin region and planted bombs along a roadway used by the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Once the Turkish-backed rebels entered the area, the YPG sleeper cell detonated their roadside bombs and destroyed the FSA’s vehicle.

As a result of this attack, at least two members of the Free Syrian Army were killed, the YPG activists reported.

Below is the video of the ambush that was carried out by the YPG-affiliated sleeper cell:

The Turkish-backed rebels have been the target of several hit-and-run attacks by the YPG sleeper cells in the Afrin region.

These attacks have been ongoing since the Turkish-backed rebels captured this region in the month of March.

When Assad finishes retaking Quneitra, he’ll be heading straight to western Aleppo and Idlib, hopefully the Kurds are getting things ready for them.

Continue to dream… No future unity between Kurds and regime! Kurds are battle hardened and ready.

“this is the way: secular forces, unite!”
=> I 100% agree.
“first the jihadis, second the turds, then the USAliens!”
=> I don’t think Yankees consider to stay and they are secular, their religion being the Dollar ^_^
There are other sectarian forces to consider getting rid of and if they are helping to get rid of the Nusra/ISIS roaches, it’s only to push another sectarian agenda on Syria…
