  • Turkish forces strike Syrian army positions in Aleppo, no casualties reported

Turkish military forces have reportedly fired several rockets at the positions of Syrian government forces in the Arab country’s Northwestern Province of Aleppo.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SHOR) said in a report on Saturday that the forces struck Syrian army strongholds in Urum al-Kubrah town, which lies in the western countryside of the province.

The Britain-based war monitor added that there were no casualties in the incident.

Separately, fierce clashes broke out between foreign-sponsored Takfiri terrorists on one side and Syrian government troops and their allied fighters from popular defense groups on the other in the mountainous Jabal al-Zawiya region of Syria’s Northwestern Province of Idlib.

The Observatory added that the intense gunfight was followed by shelling, which left an unknown number of people dead or injured in the ranks of both sides.

Turkish-backed militants shell Tal Harmal village in Hasakah

Also on Saturday, Turkish-backed Takfiri militants launched several rockets at Tal Harmal village, which is located in the northwestern environs of Syria’s Northeastern Province of Hasakah.

There were no immediate reports about casualties or the extent of damage caused.

Turkish-backed militants were deployed to northern Syria last October after Turkish military forces launched a long-threatened cross-border invasion in a declared attempt to push the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) militants away from border areas.
