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.
