BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 A.M.) – The Turkish-backed militants have reportedly captured a key border city in the northern countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

Led by the so-called “Syrian National Army”, the Turkish-backed militants announced last night that their forces captured the strategic border city of Tal Abyad after several days of battle against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

This announcement came nearly a day after they claimed control over the border city of Al-Ras Al-‘Ayn, which is located just east of the Al-Raqqa Governorate’s border.

However, since the announcement of Ras Al-‘Ayn’s capture by the militants, the Syrian Democratic Forces have managed to reenter and retake several areas from the Turkish-backed group.

With the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) recent deployment to the cities of Manbij and Kobani, it appears this operation by the Turkish-backed militants will be limited to Tal Abyad and Ras Al-‘Ayn.
