Areas around three Russian military observation posts in the city of Ain Issa have just been attacked from Turkish territory after a meeting of the Turkish military command with pro-Turkish terrorists.
For more than 12 hours, pro-Turkish militants have been bombing the northern regions of Ain Issa along the M-4 highway. The fire is underway in the areas of al-Muallak, Seida, Jebel. Despite the losses among the militants (about 10 people), they persistently try to break through the Kurdish defenses. The Turkish armed forces do not control the situation; any attempt to remove the militants from the line of contact with the Kurds is unsuccessful.
An official Russian complaint against Turkey demanded an urgent investigation and the withdrawal of pro-Turkish forces from the line of contact.
The escalation of tensions in this zone is obviously due to the intervention of the Russian army. With the occupation of the city, the terrorists and the Turkish army could have direct access to the M4 highway to transfer their soldiers and convoys.
For the moment, there is no official statement from Russia on this subject, however, Kurdish media report that Russian drones are closely monitoring the situation, which indicates that the Russian army is ready to use its fighters to strike the terrorists’ position in case of threats.
Syrian sources today reported an explosion at an ammunition depot belonging to the terrorist group Ahrar al-Cham in the northwest of the country.
“The explosion occurred on Friday evening in an ammunition depot belonging to the terrorist group Ahrar al-Cham in a base near the city of Afrin,” reported a source affiliated with terrorist groups.
Sources reported that the explosion took place in a village on the outskirts of the town of Jendris, killing five members of Ahrar al-Cham.
The explosion occurred while the northern Syrian regions, generally controlled by the Turkish army, have always witnessed car and motorcycle bombs.
On the other hand, Syrian sources yesterday reported violent clashes between the Turkish army and the FDS in Ain Issa. The clashes are still continuing there, according to the same sources.
