BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:40 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed militants launched an unprovoked attack today on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in the northeastern region of Syria.
Led by the so-called Syrian National Army, the Turkish-backed militants began their atack by storming the Syrian Army’s positions at the northwestern part of the Tal Tamr District.
Following a short exchange of hostilities, the Syrian Army was able to beat back the Turkish-backed militants near Tal Tamr, forcing the latter to withdraw back towards Ras Al-‘Ayn.
A source from the military said that the Syrian Arab Army suffered a couple of casualties as a result of this attack by the Turkish-backed militants.
This latest attack by the Turkish-backed militants marks the first time this week that they have stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in northeastern Syria.
