Damascus Sends Forces, Military Equipment to Afrin as Turkey Opens New Operational Front

Damascus Sends Forces, Military Equipment to Afrin
The Syrian army dispatched a large number of forces and military equipment to Afrin region as the Turkish army and its allied militants intensified attacks against the Kurds South of the town.

Field sources reported on Wednesday that the Turkish army and its affiliated militants have opened a new operational front against the Kurdish militias South of the town of Afrin on Tuesday.

The Ankara-backed militants gained control of the strategic mountain of al-Ahlam and the villages of Basouteh, Ein Dareh, Karzihleh and Qazi Rihleh in clashes with the Kurdish forces in Southern Afrin.

Meantime, field sources reported that the Syrian army has sent tens of its forces and military equipment to the villages of Nobl and al-Zahra near Tal Rafa'at in South of Afrin.

The Syrian government has condemned the capture of Afrin by the Turkish military, calling on Ankara to “immediately” pull out troops from the Northwestern Syrian city.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry voiced strong opposition to Turkey’s takeover of Afrin in two letters to the United Nations on Monday, protesting the move as "illegitimate”.

  1. The Turkish-backed rebels have been rapidly expanding their presence around the northern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate recently, capturing several areas that were under the control of the Kurdish-led YPG forces.

    Led by the Free Syrian Army (FSA), the Turkish-backed rebels had another productive day this week, seizing a half dozen towns from the YPG after a short battle.
