Latest battle update from northern Aleppo

The Turkish-backed rebels have been cruising through the Afrin countryside lately, capturing several areas from the Kurdish-led YPG forces.

Led by the Free Syrian Army (FSA), the Turkish-backed rebels captured a number of areas inside the large Rajou District, forcing the YPG to retreat from several sites.

In addition to their advances at the Rajou District, the Turkish-backed rebels have also been able to secure several advances in the southwestern part of Afrin; this has resulted in a large buffer-zone near the Idlib Governorate’s provincial border.

As a result of these advances, the Turkish-backed rebels now control at least 15 percent of the Afrin region, including a large part of the northeastern countryside near the Busayra Mountain.
