BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:40 P.M.) – The Turkish military has begun firing several rounds of artillery shells on the Kurdish-held border-city of Jarabulus in Aleppo’s northeastern countryside, pro-opposition activists reported this afternoon.

Furthermore, the Turkish troops have intensified their attacks on the Kurdish-held Afrin Canton, striking several towns under the control of the People’s Protection Units (YPG).

The YPG has responded to the Turkish Army’s aggression in Afrin with a barrage of grad missiles; however, there has been no word from the Jarabulus front.

The Turkish Minister of Defense announced on Friday that their forces will indeed be conducting an invasion of the Afrin Canton in a bid to uproot the YPG from the area.

Jarablus, “kurdish held”? I thought Daesh had ‘graciously’ handed it to turkish-backed islamists.
