The alleged FSA fighters that were killed during the YPG's attack

BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) continued their operations against the Turkish-backed rebels in the Afrin region of northwest Aleppo.

According to the YPG’s official media wing, their sleeper cell ambushed a Free Syrian Army (FSA) vehicle in the Shera District of Afrin over the weekend.

“On December 8th, one of our units carried out an operation in Afrin’s Shera district, targeting the military vehicle of the Sultan Murad Division commander named Abu al-Mot, who was in charge of the so-called Defense Committee. As a result, the terrorist commander was killed and another mercenary was wounded,” the YPG said.

The following day, the YPG attacked a Free Syrian Army base that was located near the Turkish border with Afrin.

“On December 9th, our forces carried out an operation against the military base of the Sultan Murad Division mercenary faction located in Qurne village of Afrin’s Bilbile district. As a result, one of the terrorists was killed and another two were wounded,” they added.
