Turkish forces bombed the northern countryside of Ain Issa, in the countryside of Raqqa (northern Syria), on Thursday with artillery and mortar shells, according to the Kurdish reports.
It is noteworthy that the Turkish-backed factions had bombed, during the past two days, the northern neighborhoods of Ain Issa.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) documented the injury of three civilians as a result of the missile strikes carried out by the Turkish forces and the factions loyal to them on the Ain Issa area, north of Raqqa, on Tuesday evening.
SOHR reported that Turkish forces launched a missile attack on the village of Sidon, which is under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces, in the northern countryside of Ain Issa, on Tuesday, and shells fired by Turkish forces fell at the entrances to Ain Issa district.
In a related context, the Observatory quoted its sources in the northern countryside of Raqqa as saying, Thursday, that the Turkish forces began to establish a military base in the village of Tamamih in the countryside of Ain Issa, about 2 km from Ain Issa district, which is under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces.
In another regard, SOHR announced, Thursday, the death of a member of the Syrian Democratic Forces, as a result of a landmine explosion near Ain Issa camp in the northern countryside of Raqqa.
It is noteworthy that these mines were planted by the SDF elements to secure the area there and in anticipation of the factions’ attacks, according to the observatory.
