BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) carried out a powerful ambush against a group of Turkish-backed rebels near Afrin city this past weekend.

“As part of the resistance against occupation of Afrin by Turkish invasion army and its mercenary allies, our forces continue to carry out spesific (sic) operations targeting these elements,” the official media wing of the YPG said.

“On October 7, our units infiltrated to one of the bases of Cabha al-Shami front and carried out an operation which resulted in the death of 4 mercenariesin (sic) village of Mariamin of Afrin’s Shara town,” they added.

This latest attack comes just days after the Turkish-backed rebels arrested a number of people in Afrin city and its surroundings.
