Turkey shot the Kurds in Syria
A Turkish fighter hit military sites of the Syrian Democratic Forces in the village of Saida in the countryside of Ain Issa. This caused loud explosions
– Inform The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. This was the first raid since the so-called Operation Peace Spring in 2019, when Ankara and its Syrian allies launched a military campaign against the SDF in northern Syria. The process of clearing the borders of the Kurdish formations stopped after two agreements that Ankara had negotiated with WashingtonThen with Moscow. As a result, Turkey has taken control of the border “safe zone” in Syria. But Ain Issa city remained in the hands of the Kurdish forces.
The SDF is an alliance consisting primarily of Kurdish, Arab, and Assyrian-Syrian militias, in addition to a number of smaller Armenian, Turkmen and Chechen forces.
