Turkey may attack Tal Rifaat to expel Kurds

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:50 P.M.) – Turkey is actively seeking to have the Russian military kick out the Kurdish-led YPG forces from the northern Aleppo town of Tal Rifa’at, a source in Aleppo told Al-Masdar News this afternoon.

According to the source in Aleppo, Turkey has repeatedly asked the Russians to demand the YPG leave Tal Rifa’at in order to return the town to the Arab inhabitants.

 Tal Rifa’at was an important buffer-zone for the YPG forces near the Afrin region prior to their loss of the latter; it is now one of the last areas they control in northern Aleppo.
