On January 29, Syrian pro-government forces targeted a Turkish military convoy in Aleppo city outskirt, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
The London-based monitoring group said that the incident took place during the afternoon in the district of al-Rashidin, west of Aleppo’s city center.
“The shelling burned a Turkish military vehicle, there is no information so far about any casualties,” the SOHR’s report reads.
Several other sources, including Iba’a the news network of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), confirmed the SOHR’s claims. Some activists even shared photos of the alleged incident.
Turkey’s Ministry of National Defense has not commented on these claims, so far. The Turkish military maintains four observation posts in the northwestern, western and southwestern countrysides of Aleppo.
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is now conducting a large-scale offensive in the outskirt of Aleppo city in order to secure it, once and for all.
