BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:25 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed rebel forces inside the city of Afrin in northwestern Aleppo are once again fighting one another over personal disputes.

According to local reports, Jaysh Ahrar Al-Sharqiyah stormed, without warning, the Al-Hamzat Division’s bases inside Afrin city, today, arresting more than 15 fighters and seizing all of their weapons and vehicles.

No further details were released.

Jaysh Ahrar Al-Sharqiyah was previously based in the eastern Qalamoun region of Damascus before they were evacuated to the Afrin region, per the peace agreement with the Syrian government.

There’s one thing I must admit even I really love my Arab brothers. If you want to separate two Arabs making them fight each other just show them $100 bill (this is what they do now in Afrin – fighting for war spoils). So sad. This will never happen between Iranians, or Jewish…

It’s not “so sad”. Hopefully they’re greedy, just like all criminals fuelled by their so-called “religious” book that even promises serious booty to those who fight for this folly.
Their “principles” are working on the same principle as a Ponzi scheme : if they can’t extend to take more and more and more spoils, soon they’ll fight each other as now, they should work like every normal people but as they’re lazy and so want easy money, just like any criminal, here we go again!
Their “God” is a fool’s crutch.

Ask yourself why at one point Russian generals high command decided to hold on the Idlib offensive a couple of months ago even noone was able to stop Tigers reaching Kafarya and Foua. So, even Erdogan to not be able to control them and to give up at one point…
