In the wake of the Turkish air raids against the Syrian enclave of Afrin, the inhabitants of this region who were forced to exodus, found refuge in the heights of al-Ahlam and other areas more secure.

According to the media showcase of the pro-Western Syrian opposition, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (OSDH), more than 2,000 civilians have managed to leave Afrin in the direction of the two Shiite districts of Nubl and al Zahraa, which hosts around 16,000 displaced people.

Before the Syrian Army regained control of Aleppo, the terrorist group said the Free Syrian Army seized the two aforementioned districts. Assisted by the same Afrin Kurds, the Syrian army managed to break the siege of Nubl and al-Zahraa.

However, the Turkish government spokesman announced that the Turkish forces and their mercenaries (ASL) would begin the Afrin clean-up operation of the presence of the People’s Protection Units (YPG).
