Faylaq al-Rahman pays a monthly 200-dollar salary to anyone who joins the terrorist group.

 

Earlier, sources had revealed that security control of Afrin is due to be transferred to Faylaq al-Rahman after a series of meetings between the Turkish officials and commanders of the terrorist group.

 

Also in the past 24 hours, two Ankara-backed militant groups engaged in fierce clashes in Afrin region over distribution of assets they looted form local civilians' houses and shops.

 

Ahrar al-Sham and al-Shamiyeh Front, both backed up by the Turkish army, exchanged heavy fire in Afrin over the distribution of the assets they had stolen from locals' houses.
