Tensions between the Syrian government and the Erdogan regime are growing in the northern Syrian province of Aleppo.

Last night, pro-Turkey militants, supported by the Turkish Armed Forces, attacked the joint forces of the Syrian army and the Kurdish YPG in the village of Azraq, located about 6 km west of al-Bab (read more about the race for al-Bab).

Pro-Turkey sources claim that the army-YPG forces were pushed to retreat from the village. These reports have to be confirmed by the evidence on the ground.

Local sources say that intense fighting between the “opposition” and “regime forces” is ongoing in the area.

Earleir in November, the Syrian army and the Kurdish YPG formed a joint force to advance against ISIS east of Aleppo city and recently this force reached the areas controlled by Turkey-led forces.
