SOHR activists have reported a spike in the number of fatalities of the heavy airstrikes by Turkish fighter jets in the past few hours on areas under the control of the Autonomous Administration in North and East Syria (AANES). According to Observatory sources, eight SDF fighters and affiliated workers and six regime soldiers were killed, while the number of fatalities is expected to rise further, as the attack left at least 30 members of SDF and regime forces injured, some seriously, amid unconfirmed reports of more fatalities.

-SDF: nine fatalities:
- Seven were killed in Jabal Qarrah area in Al-Malikiyah countryside (Dayrek) in Al-Hasakah province.
