The Turkish Army intervened in the Latakia Governorate on Wednesday when the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a surprise offensive against the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front).

According to a military source in the Latakia Governorate, the Turkish Army fired several artillery shells towards the town of Nawara, where the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces (NDF) were positioned on Wednesday.


While no casualties were reported, the heavy shelling forced the Syrian Arab Army and their allies to withdraw their assault in northern Latakia.


This latest attack by the Turkish Army comes just hours after their air force bombed the Kurdish-led “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) in the northern Aleppo countryside.
