BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – Heavy clashes broke out in the eastern Aleppo city of Al-Bab on Thursday when two Turkish-backed rebel groups exchanged hostilities.

According to a report from the Aleppo countryside, several members of the Al-Hamza Divison and Sultan Murad Brigade were involved in a heavy exchange of gunfire in Al-Bab, resulting in a number of casualties within the ranks of both rebel groups.

The reason for the infighting is still unknown at this time; however, the two groups have clashed in the past.

The Turkish-backed rebels have been in control of Al-Bab since 2016; they captured the city from the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) following a short campaign to establish a presence in the area.
