On Monday, pro-Turkish militants launched an advance against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the direction of Ayn Daqnah in the northern part of the Syrian province of Aleppo.
According to pro-Kurdish sources, the attack was supported by Turkish artillery units. The artillery shelling also targeted YPG positions in Herbel, Sheikh Issa and Tel Rifat.
The YPG repelled the first wave of the attack and allegedly killed 20 pro-Turkish militants and captured few vehicles. However, the fighting is still ongoing in the area.
