With clashes on frontlines of northern rural Aleppo | Turkish forces and proxy factions shell villages in Kurdish-held areas
Aleppo Governorate- Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored this evening artillery shelling by Turkish forces stationed at the base of “Al-Buhuth” in northern Aleppo countryside, targeting frontlines of the village of Maranaz and the outskirts of the town of Tel Rifaat.
The shelling coincided with clashes between Kurdish forces and Turkish-backed factions, following an infiltration attempt by Turkish-backed factions into the positions of Kurdish forces in the villages of Ain Daqna and Maranaz in northern countryside of Aleppo province. No casualties have been reported so far.
On January 11, SOHR activists said that Turkish forces and their proxy factions shelled the villages of Mar’anaz, Ain Daqna, Al-Belouna and Tal Rifa’at in areas held by Kurdish forces in northern Aleppo countryside. No casualties have been reported so far.
The shelling comes after nearly five days of tense calm on frontlines of northern and north-eastern Aleppo countryside, which is controlled by Kurdish forces on one side, and Turkish-backed factions on the other.
