Failed infiltration into SDF positions | Turkish and “National Army” forces shell Ain Eisa following death of two members
Al-Raqqa province: SOHR activists have reported that ground shelling was renewed by Turkish forces and their proxies on Ain Eisa countryside northern of Al-Hasakah, where shells hit Haidariyat, Fatissa, Haisha, Al-Mashirfiyah and Jahbal villages and the International “M4” road between Aleppo and Al-Hasakah, killing herd of sheep and causing material damages to civilians’ properties.
A few hours ago, SOHR activists documented the death of two militiamen of the Turkish-backed “National Army” in SDF gunfire, while the militias were attempting to sneak into the frontlines of Al-Mushayrifah and Jahbal in the eastern countryside of Ain Issa in northern Al-Raqqah.
Earlier this morning, SOHR activists documented the death of five civilians and injury of four others in Turkish bombardment on Hdayrat village in the east of Ain Issa district in the northern countryside of Al-Raqqah. According to SOHR sources, the fatalities’ bodies were not recovered due to the ongoing bombardment.
It is worth noting that the Turkish bombardment coincided with exchange of rocket fire between Syria Democratic Forces on one hand, and Turkish forces and their proxy factions on the other nearby Latakia-Aleppo international highway “M4” in the eastern part of Ain Issa district, along with ongoing clashes between the two sides on the frontlines of Al-Mshayrifah and Jahbal villages, as Turkish rocket and artillery fire paved the way for the Turkish-backed factions to advance into that region.
Observatory sources reported earlier this morning that Ankara-backed factions attempted to infiltrate into positions on the international highway “M4” from the eastern side of Ain Issa district, the capital of Autonomous Administration in north of Al-Raqqa, in the early hours of Saturday morning.
This development coincided with intensive rocket fire carried out by Turkish forces and their proxies on the area, as well as the ongoing clashes in and around Ghuwayran prison in Al-Hasakah city.
It is worth noting that this was the most violent attack by Turkish forces in more than two months.
