"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. "

US backed rebels capture village from Turkish backed rebels in northern Aleppo: map- Al-Masdar News

The U.S. backed “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) reportedly captured the village of Sheikh ‘Issa in the northern Aleppo countryside on Saturday after launching an attack against the Turkish backed “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) near the strategic town of Mar’e. 

With Sheikh ‘Issa under their control, the Syrian Democratic Forces are in prime position to strike the town of Mar’e from the western flank. 

This latest advance by the U.S. backed rebels is likely due to the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) push to take Mar’e from the Free Syrian Army.
