BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 A.M.) – The Turkish-backed rebels launched a surprise attack against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on late Monday evening, targeting the latter’s positions in the northern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate.

According to local activists in the Afrin Canton, clashes were reported at several axes in northern Aleppo, including the area around Umm Hawsh, Qastal Jand, Zawiyan, and the Sahba Dam.

No further details have been released from this front.

The Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) has long opposed the Kurdish forces in northern Syria, despite the fact the latter has not carried out any operations against them unless provoked.

Good. Let them keep the Kurds busy on both fronts so the SAA has time to clean out the rest of the jihadist and can then concentrate on ISIS. it will also give Syria reason to take over areas taken by the Kurds

Kurds feel the same on islamists attacks on SAA and in thisreasoning will soon be able to take DeZ.

They should cooperate instead of weaening eachother.
