BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Russian military have been amassing a large force in western Al-Raqqa, as several convoys of reinforcements head to this front.
According to a field report from Al-Raqqa, the Syrian Army and Russian military sent convoys of reinforcements to the ‘Ayn ‘Issa front, which is near the front-lines with the Turkish-backed militants.
A source from the Syrian Army said these troops are heading there for a potential military operation and to strengthen the military’s defenses in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.
The Turkish-backed militants have been targeting the Syrian Arab Army troops and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the ‘Ain ‘Issa area for several weeks now, despite the ongoing ceasefire in northern Syria.
These attacks by the Turkish-backed militants have largely gone uncontested, as the SAA and SDF have refrained from retaliating.
However, it seems the Syrian Army will not be tolerating these attacks, as they move forces to the front-lines for a potential military operation to expel the Turkish-backed militants.
