BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led Afrin Liberation Forces launched a new attack against a group of Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters in the Afrin region on Saturday.

According to reports, the Afrin Liberation Front attempted to attack the Free Syrian Army’s 3rd Legion along the Deir Mushmush axis in Afrin.

However, the Free Syrian Army’s 3rd Legion had prior information about the attack, allowing them to prepare their forces to repel any assault by the ALF.

The 3rd Legion said they managed to ambush the would-be attackers from the Afrin Liberation Forces, resulting in the death of several members of the latter.

As a result of the attack, the Afrin Liberation Forces were forced to retreat back into the forest around Deir Mushmush.

That’s what they say, but show nothing to prove it…

In the coking months they will be running from Afrin. It is telling that, even in an ambush, the mercenaries did not follow ALF into the forest. Have they lost control over the countryside?
