Over the past 24 hours, Turkish-backed Euphrates Shield forces captured five soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) amid clashes in northeastern Aleppo near the city of Al-Bab.

One of soldiers was a member of the National Defence Forces (NDF) and saw himself captured amid skirmishes west of Manbij in an area which Kurdish forces have handed over to the SAA. His ID-card stated that he originated from Deir Ezzor.

Meanwhile, four SAA troops were captured as the Turkish Army and aligned Free Syrian Army (FSA) factions launched an renewed assault on Tadef in order to build a buffer-zone around Al-Bab. Unfortunately, one of the soldiers died shortly after from his injuries.

Effectively, 13 SAA soldiers surrended themselves/a> over the past week alone.

One Turkmen FSA faction claimed to have killed 9 fighters of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), including a female commander, during clashes in the nearby village of Abu Hayj.

The FSA’s Al-Hamza Division also continued to demine IED’s left behind by ISIS insurgents prior to their withdrawal from the city.

In related news, the SAA has scored unprecedented gains against ISIS in the eastern Aleppo countryside, capturing around five villages daily.

I wonder what the Turkish government would say when the SAA or SAA aligned mercenaries went over the border into Turkey and captured Turkish Army soldiers and militia. And IMHO what TA and TA mercenaries do is kidnapping, murder and a hostile act of aggression.

There’s a simple thing to do to make Erdolf really mad : distribute ManPADS and ATGMs to PKK and in numbers, exactly like the Saudis did, thus, they gave very few M-PADS. Soon you’ll see a lotsa Cobras, Chinooks and Vypers fall from the skies on Guerila.TV… Milan-ER has a little less range than TOW but the warhead is also bigger and well, Germans didn’t tested against Leopard2 which has just a single weak point to TOW, so let’s test if Milan does it better… And it’ll make Turkey order more gear to replace and more orders to MBDA, same… Read more »

Awfully clumsy of the SAA. What about not sending out small groups if the ‘FSA’ rats are waiting to grab them – the only military exploit they are capable of?

De nada sirvió los acuerdos de Astana, Turquía no respeta el alto al fuego, Erdogan extiende la mano a Putin pero con la otra le mete cuchillo.
El gobierno Sirio tiene la obligación de protestar ante la ONU en las negociaciones que participa en estos momentos, El ejercito invasor y sus mercenarios se tienen que retirar ya no hay necesidad de luchar contra ISIS en el lugar.
