Aleppo province: SOHR activists have reported that the number of Turkish soldiers killed in the rocket attack by Kurdish forces on their vehicle on Hezwan frontlines in Aleppo countryside, has risen to three.
On the other hand, Turkish forces and their proxies fired more than 200 artillery shells and rockets on areas under the control of Kurdish troops and al-Bab Military Council in Aleppo countryside, along with clashes on Hezawan frontlines which blocked the roads in that region.
SOHR activists had documented the death of a Turkish soldier and serious injuries to four others, after their vehicle was targeted on the frontline of Hazawan in Aleppo countryside by an anti-tank guided missile fired by Kurdish forces.
SOHR activists also reported that Kurdish troops shelled, with artillery, Turkish military post in Hazawan town in Aleppo countryside, amid reports of fatalities among Turkish troops and their proxies.
Meanwhile, Turkish forces stationed in military bases in Jabal al-Sheikh Aqeel and Hazawan bombarded the villages of Zuweyan, Radar and al-Sha’ala in al-Bab countryside in eastern Aleppo. Moreover, Turkish forces and their proxies expanded their shelling, targeting Kurdish-held villages of Tel al-Madiq, al-Sadd and Ghoul Saroug in Aleppo countryside.
Syrian Observatory activists reported earlier in the morning that Turkish forces fired several rockets in the early hours of Saturday morning, targeting positions in Abbin village, Mar’naz and Tel Rifaat in the northern countryside of Aleppo. The rocket fire caused material damage, but no casualties were reported. It is worth noting that regime forces are deployed in Tel Rifaat which also hosts a Russian military base.
