BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – Syrian opposition activists claimed via their social media accounts on Thursday that clashes broke-out between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Turkish forces in the Al-Bab countryside.

Reports of these clashes between the Syrian Arab Army and Euphrates Shield fighters surfaced around 3:30 P.M. (Damascus Time), when the former reached another part of the Turkish-backed forces’ front-lines.

The source of these claims are Syrian opposition activists associated with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in northern Syria.

These FSA activists allege that the Syrian Arab Army and the Turkish-backed “Abu Zinideen Front” engaged in a firefight west of Al-Bab city this afternoon.

As of now, Al-Masdar News cannot verify these claims.

If true? It looks like the SFA want to draw Turkey into a confrontation with Syria. For that case I hope the SAA will wipe the floor not only with them but with their puppet masters too.

All I know is that jund-al-aqsa, official daish affiliate, took over over 15 town in Hama and Idlib; and yet, not a single air strike landed on top of them. hmm?

FSA is used to running away from any real resistance so the only forces the SAA could have a firefight with are ISIS or Turkey. It is sad to see the FSA fanboys need to put focus on something else than them loosing badly in Idlib to Al-Queda. 😉

Estos mercenarios Turcos le dieron la mano a ISIS, el ejercito Sirio tomo la ciudad de Deir Qaq y avanzó hacia el norte, la cobertura fue hecho por mercenarios Turcos para que ISIS se retire hacia Al-Bab para no sufrir bajas.
