"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Pro-gov’t daily claims 500 rebels crossed into Syria to fight against YPG- CHA

Five hundred anti-Syrian government fighters have entered Syria thorough Turkey to prevent Kurdish forces from advancing to the northern Syrian town of Azaz, the last rebel stronghold before the border with Turkey, and securing a corridor to Aleppo, a pro-government daily has claimed.

According to a report published in Yeni Şafak on Tuesday, a large number of anti-Syrian government fighters were dispatched to Syria through Turkey on Feb. 13 after Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) exploited an offensive by the Syrian army, supported byRussian bombing and Iranian-backed Shiite militias, and seized ground from Syrianrebels to extend their presence along the border.

The Faylaq al-Sham group, also known as the Sham Legion and presviosly affiliated with the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, sent 500 fighters situated in the Syrian northwestern city of Idlib to Azaz via Turkey on Feb. 13 to secure a route to Aleppo and prevent theYPG forces reaching Azaz.
