On Sunday, Turkish forces pushed new military reinforcements into the northern Aleppo countryside, including tanks and heavy military vehicles.
According to a reporter in Baladi News in Aleppo countryside, a Turkish military column entered on Sunday evening from the Bab al-Salama border crossing with Turkey. It was carrying military equipment and ammunition and went to the Akhtarin area near the village of al-Kaiba, north of Aleppo, near the fronts of fighting with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the area.
In other news, local sources confirmed that a military column of regime forces, including tanks, cannons and troop carriers, withdrew from the Tel Rifaat area of the northern Aleppo countryside and headed to the city of Ain al-Arab (Kobani) through the city of Manbij, east of Aleppo.
The reinforcements were accompanied by violent clashes between members of the National Army and SDF forces on the Tuwayhina front in eastern Aleppo, without causing any casualties between the two sides.
According to our correspondent, these reinforcements to the Turkish army are part of the strengthening of all areas of separation with the SDF forces, out of fear of any infiltrations or surprise attacks by SDF.
