Turkey’s military forcers and allied rebels in Syria continued their offensive against the town of Tel Rifaat in northern Aleppo, targeting positions of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), local sources reported on Wednesday according to ARA News.
The SDF who comprise mostly of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, had its headquarters in Tel Rifaat and residential buildings targeted by Turkish mortar shells and machine gun fire.
Two Turkish cobra helicopters also hit the village of Tal Alo in Syria’s northeastern Hasakah Governorate, close to the headquarters of the Arab Sanadid forces, the ARA News report continued.
Kurdish female fighters of the Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) on Monday also clashed with Turkish Army forces near the town of Amude in Hasakah Governorate, the report also claimed.
“After three hours of sporadic clashes, the Turkish Army was forced to withdraw. They retreated towards the Turkish side of the border,” a YPJ officer told ARA News.
