Earlier in the day, SOHR activists reported the infiltration of members of Ankara-backed factions in the early hours of Wednesday into Debs village in west Ain Essa countryside that is under control of the SDF.
The factions’ members looted dozens of sheep and cattle and killed the owner of the animal after kidnapping him with his animals and then shot him dead and threw his body in the street. The attack also wounded parents of the victim and violent clashes erupted between the factions’ members and SDF. But, no casualties were reported at both sides.
Yesterday, Syrian Observatory activists reported rocket attacks by Turkish forces on positions in the SDF-held village of al-Dabas in the western countryside of Ain Essa in the northern countryside of al-Raqqah. However, no casualties have been reported.
