Aleppo (Syria News) The Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army has captured the center of Rajo area, west of Afrin.
Spokesman for the National Army Mohamed Hamadin said, today, that the military factions have captured the town of Rajo, at dawn today, while pointed out that the clashes are still ongoing in the area.
Meanwhile, some activists published video recordings showing a number of fighters while removing the flags belonging to the Kurdish People Protection Units (YPG) and Syrian regime.
Furthermore, military sources informed, yesterday, that the special forces of both Free and Turkish armies started to break into Rajo from several axes, after recapturing some villages.
The Free Syrian Army is preparing to advance into three areas on the eastern front of Afrin area, in order to secure the road that was opened between the northern countryside of Aleppo and Idlib Province.
The town of Rajo is the center of a sub-district of the same name with approximately 65 villages and farms around it. The town is 25 kilometers away from the city of Afrin towards the northwest direction.
In February 2018, armed clashes broke out in Rajo between the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army and People’s Protection Units (YPG) amidst the Turkish military intervention to capture the Kurdish-held city of Afrin.
