Following Erdogan statements about “clearing” Tel Rifaat and Manbij | Russian armoured vehicle tour areas nearby Tel Rifaat
Aleppo province: SOHR sources have reported seeing a Russian armoured vehicle touring areas in Kafr Naseh and Kafrnaya areas nearby Tel Rifaat to the north of Aleppo city, where Kurdish and regime forces are deployed.
This development comes as a part of the recent movements by Russian forces following the latest statements by the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan about “clearing” Tel Rifaat and Manbij in the north and north-eastern countryside of Aleppo.
A few hours ago, SOHR activists reported an attack on a civil car carrying a family from Al-Bab area. The attack, which left a child injured, took place in Al-Halawanji village in areas under the control of Turkish-backed factions in the north-eastern countryside of Aleppo, as the car was targeted by military forces deployed in areas controlled by “Manbij Military Council Forces.”
Observatory sources had reported a new round of Turkish bombardment on SDF-controlled areas, where artillery shells hit positions in the area of the cement company in west Tel Abyad countryside and other positions in Awn Al-Dadat area in Manbij countryside in north-eastern Aleppo and the surrounding areas of Lafarge company in Ain Al-Arab countryside (Kobani). No casualties were reported, while military forces in Ain Al-Arab were put on high alert. It is worth noting that the targeted area hosted a former military base of the International Coalition.
