Al-Raqqa - SMART

On Sunday, the Turkish Army and the Syrian National Army (SNA) associated with the Syrian Interim Government shelled the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) bases in the Nahiyat Ayn Issa, 50 kilometers north of al-Raqqa, Northeastern Syria.

A military source reported to SMART that the shelling hit the SDF bases near a gas station near the international highway (M4) in the area, and other military posts in the villages of al-Fatisa and al-Haisha in the Nahiyat Ayn Issa.

The source added that the shelling partially destroyed SDF posts and a four-wheel vehicle equipped with a machine gun. The source noted that the shelling caused no casualties.

The source added that the Turkish Army fired light bombs to the sky of Ayn Issa after SDF fighters tried to infiltrate the vicinity of the village of al-Sharakrak, east of Ayn Issa.

On Nov. 29, 2019, an SNA artillery shelling injured four SDF fighters in SDF bases in the vicinity of the 93rd Brigade base near Ayn Issa.

On Oct. 13, 2019, the SNA gained control of the city of Tal Abyad and the town of Suluk, northern al-Raqqa, on the Syrian-Turkish border. On Oct. 9, 2019, the SNA and Turkish Army launched a military operation against the SDF in the area.
