BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The Turkish military launched a barrage of artillery shells towards the defenses of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) this evening.

According to reports from northern Aleppo, the Turkish military heavily targeted the Tal Rifa’at area, hitting both the Syrian Army and YPG forces, despite being in separate camps.

The attack reportedly lasted for a short while, but neither the Syrian Army nor the YPG responded to the ceasefire violation by the Turkish military.

In the past couple of months, the Turkish military has intensified their attacks in northern Aleppo, despite the announcement of a ceasefire on March 5th.

Turkey claims it is “fighting terrorists” inside of Syria, as they have repeatedly used this argument to justify their presence in several parts of the country.
