Turkish attack | Woman and child injured in shelling on Ain Issa, north of Raqqa
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has documented the injury of a woman and a child, as a result of a Turkish rocket attack targeting the town of Ain Issa located in northern countryside of Raqqa, which is under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces.
SOHR sources have reported earlier fierce clashes between Turkish-backed factions and the SDF on western frontlines of Ain Issa area, north of Raqqa, in an attempt by the factions to advance into the villages of Houshan and Khalidiya, amid intensive Turkish artillery shelling on the area, the frontlines, and the “M4” road, north of Raqqa.
Yesterday, Syrian Observatory activists reported that Aleppo-Al-Hasakah international highway (M4) is back in service again, as civilian and commercial convoys escorted by Russian patrols have been seen traveling from Ain Issa in northern Al-Raqqah to Tal Tamr in Al-Hasakah countryside.
It is worth noting that the highway was opened on December 20, but it was closed again after only one day over the military escalation on the area.
