The fighting in Syria between Turkish Syrian government troops has once again reignited. Turkish military forces have launched a new attack against the Syrian Army in the northern area outside of Aleppo. Meanwhile, Syrian troops are massing in the Jabal Al-Zawiya area as they seem to be preparing to resume offensive operations.
According to a field report from the Aleppo countryside, Turkish troops targeted the Syrian Army’s positions near the city of Manbij, injuring a few soldiers in the process.
The U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), said that Turkish artillery pounded Syrian positions around Manbij, which resulted in the wounding of two high ranking officers. Just a few days before, the Turks targeted the same area but their shelling resulted in only the killing of a young girl and her father.
According to the SOHR, the Turks have also hacked into Syrian army radio frequencies around Idlib and issued a warning not to violate the de-escalation zone.
