North of Raqqa | Russian forces bring in over 20 trucks loaded with military and logistical equipment to their base in Ain Issa

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored this morning Russian forces bringing in a convoy of 22 trucks loaded with closed containers, carrying military and logistical equipment. The convoy headed to the Russian base in Ain Issa area, north of Raqqa.

Yesterday, Syrian Observatory activists monitored renewed clashes accompanied by intensive exchange of fire with artillery, medium and heavy machineguns between Turkish forces and their proxy factions on one hand, and Syria Democratic Forces on the other, on frontlines of Jahbal Al-Amushayrifah villages in the countryside of Ain Issa district near M4 highway. This development, which comes after tense calm and cessation of clashes for hours, coincides with sporadic bombardment on Houshan village in the west of Tal Abyad in northern Al-Raqqah. No casualties have been reported.

Two days ago, Observatory activists documented the death of seven Turkish-backed militiamen and the wounding of four others, as a result of violent clashes with the SDF in the previous night on Al-Mushrefa frontline in the north-east of Ain Issa in northern Al-Raqqah. Accordingly, the death toll of the factions since Friday, December 18 to date rose to 24, all killed in failed attacks and attempts to advance and cut off Al-Hasakah-Aleppo international highway, at Turkey’s orders and support. Also, SDF lost five fighters in the same clashes.
