Turkish forces shell Syrian government forces in Aleppo
The Turkish forces shelled on Friday the posts of the Syrian government forces in the northern countryside of Aleppo Governorate.

There were no reports on casualties, a military source told North Press.

The source added, the Turkish forces targeted the posts of the government in the vicinity of the village of Ain Issa, east of the town of Tel Rifaat.

The town of Tel Rifaat, 35 km north of Aleppo city, has been a shelter for Afrin displaced people since 2018 following the Turkish invasion of Afrin and its countryside which resulted in the displacement of about 300.000 of the original inhabitants. 

Afrin has been under the occupation of Turkey and the armed opposition factions, known as the Syrian National Army (SNA), since 2018 following the so-called military operation “Olive Branch” against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) under the pretext of preserving “Turkey’s national security”.
