The Turkish army and their allied militants resumed their wide-scale assault on northern Syria this evening, as they heavily targeted the positions of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Al-Raqqa and Aleppo governorates.

According to a field report from the Aleppo Governorate, the Turkish army and their allied militants began their attack this evening by striking the Ain Issa countryside.

Shortly after attacking Ain Issa, the Turkish army and their allies began striking the SDF’s positions near the town of Al-Musharifah, prompting the latter to respond with a barrage of artillery.

The Turkish army would also carry out strikes in the northeastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate, where they hit the SDF’s positions near the key town of Al-Bab.

Despite agreeing to a ceasefire in October 2019, the Turkish army and their allies have continued to violate this agreement with daily strikes on the areas controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces.

These strikes have become so aggressive that the Russian military police have been deployed to several fronts in order to prevent further hostilities among the warring parties.
