BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:15 P.M.) – The Turkish Army has attacked the Syrian government forces in the Afrin region of Aleppo, a military source told Al-Masdar News this afternoon.

According to the military source, the Turkish Army heavily shelled the Syrian government forces near the city of Afrin – no casualties were reported.

In addition to the shelling, the Turkish Army also flew an armed drone over the positions of the Syrian government forces; this prompted the latter to open fire on the unmanned aircraft.

The Syrian government forces entered Afrin, today, equipped with anti-aircraft machine guns and a large arsenal of missiles.

SANA.SY does not say the same thing. It’s not the SAA who entered, it’s just a public uprising. There is something wrong or I am probably missing something.

You understood right I think.
The entering Syrian troops are defence forces not SAA.
p.s. Jazeera claims the Afrin Kurds will disarm.
