BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – Several Turkish-backed rebels were killed, yesterday, after an unknown attacked one of their convoys inside the Afrin region of Aleppo.
According to activists from the Free Syrian Army (FSA), a rebel convoy was targeted by an IED while traveling down the Rajo Highway in the Afrin region, yesterday; this resulted in the death of at least eight members of the Turkish-backed Sultan Murad group.
Another 20 more rebels from the Sultan Murad group were reportedly wounded after the powerful explosion ripped through the Afrin countryside.
The rebel activists added that some civilians were among the wounded on Wednesday.
Furthermore, the rebel activists have accused the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) of carrying out this deadly attack.
However, despite these accusations, no group has taken credit for the attack as of yet.
