The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) launched a limited attack against Turkish-backed militants in the northern Raqqa countryside late on November 15.
According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the Kurdish-led group managed to recapture the villages of Bir Tmah and Sa’dah from the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA).
The SNA launched a counter attack in the region early on November 16 with direct support from the Turkish military. However, it has failed to recapture any of the villages, so far.
“There are no information about the losses [on both sides] so far,” the SOHR’s report reads.
Earlier this month, the SNA launched a series of attacks in the northern Raqqa countryside with the aim of reaching and blocking the strategic M4 highway. The SDF managed to repel all the attacks on its own.
These repeated attacks in northeast Syria by both sides show that the situation in the region is still far from being stible, despite the recent agreements between Turkey, Russia and the U.S.
