DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:20 P.M.) – Overnight, fresh clashes erupted between the Turkish Armed Forces, backed by Ahrar Al-Sham and Free Syrian Army (FSA) factions, and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the northern countryside of Aleppo.

According to a Kurdish source close to Al-Masdar News, Turkish troops and aligned Syrian rebels launched a brief assault on the SDF-held town of Maranaz under the cover of darkness. Clashes continued throughout the night, but the Turkish-led attack proved largely fruitless with zero ground gained in Aleppo province as daylight broke on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Turkish artillery units opened fire on the villages of Ayn Daknah, Al-Biloniyah, Sheikh Issa, Al-Samuqah and Tall Rifaat today, targeting positions controlled by SDF fighters.

Sporadic firefights are also taking place across Efrin’s eastern frontline. Al-Masdar News was unable to obtain information regarding casualties due to the renewed fighting.
