Ras al-Ain | Factional clashes stopped and Ahrar al-Sharqiya intervenes to end the feud

SOHR sources say that the clashes between Turkish-backed factions stopped hours after they erupted. Reinforcement of Ahrar al-Sharqiya arrived in the city and were deployed there, closing all roads and entrances to the city of Ras al-Ain to stop clashes between Al-Hamzat and Sultan Murad factions.

SOHR sources said earlier that four members of Turkish-backed armed factions were killed in renewed clashes between Al-Hamzat and Sultan Murad factions in Ras al-Ain (Sari Kani). Clashes with machine guns and RPJs renewed after about an hour of cessation. The calm coincided with the intervention of Turkish forces and civilian police to stop the fighting, which was renewed after both sides refused to reconcile.
