Turkey seeks to oust the Kurdish population from the province of Aleppo and force the SDF to leave Raqqa.
Sources in the Syrian Arab Republic report that the Turkish army and pro-Turkish militants continue to fire at the Kurdish canton Afrin from heavy artillery. Kurds respond with massive fire.
Military experts are sure that Turkey is trying to lift the siege of the Kurdish “People’s Self-Defense Forces” (YPG) from the “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) alliance from the city of Raqqa. Ankara itself plans to clean Rakka from the militants of the terrorist group “Islamic State *” (banned in Russia) and establish control in the province.
* The organization is banned in the territory of the Russian Federation
