BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 P.M.) – Earlier this afternoon, two Turkish-backed rebel groups began to clash inside the Afrin region of the Aleppo Governorate.

According to pro-opposition activists, the clashes broke out between Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki and Ahrar Sharqiyah inside the Jandaris District of Afrin.

The reason for the clashes is unknown at the moment; however, local activists are reporting that heavy weapons are being used on both sides.

Ahrar Sharqiyah has been one of the most troublesome rebel groups in the Afrin region, as they have been involved in several prior clashes with local factions.
