BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed rebels have been on a roll in the Afrin region recently, capturing several areas from the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) and their allies.

Backed by the relentless airstrikes of the Turkish Air Force, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their allies managed to score a big advance along the Afrin-Idlib axis this past weekend.

This advance would pave the way for Monday’s success, as the Turkish-backed rebels were able to build a comfortable buffer-zone around the Jandaris area in the Afrin region’s southern countryside.

Meanwhile, in northwestern Afrin, the Turkish-backed rebels have once again tried to infiltrate the YPG’s positions in Rajou; however, they have failed to make any headway in this large district.

According to pro-YPG activists, their forces were able to foil all of the attempted advances by the Turkish-backed rebels in Rajou the Rajou District.

In response to the rebel failures in Rajou, the Turkish Air Force has unleashed a powerful attack on the district in a bid to weaken the YPG’s defenses.

Erdogan’s FSA ghazi mercs have only dribbled gains onto their colors.
They are still far behind their master’s expectations and full mouthed announcements.
