On Monday, the Russian military police conducted a solo military patrol in the countryside of the city of Ain al-Arab (Kobani) in northern Syria, without the participation of the Turkish side.
According to local sources, a joint patrol was scheduled with the Turkish side, but the latter did not participate in the patrol.
They explained that the Turkish military vehicles arrived at the border gate near the village of Gharib, located 20 km east of the city of Ain al-Arab in the eastern countryside of Aleppo, and that the Russian vehicles waited for the Turkish vehicles near the border gate for more than an hour, and then the patrol drove alone.
Since November 20, the Turkish Air Force has been carrying out air strikes on SDF positions in Ain al-Arab in the eastern countryside of Aleppo, Meng, Ain Daqna, Maranaz and Tal Rifaat in the northern countryside of Aleppo, Ain Issa north of Raqqa, and several locations in Hassakeh governorate.
