Late on October 21, Turkish-backed militants renewed their attack on the town of Ain Issa in the northern Raqqa countryside.

The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), that maintains several positions around Ain Issa, repelled the attack.

According to the Hawar News Agency, SDF forces destroyed a Turkish position near Ain Issa as a response to the attack. From its side, the SAA shelled enemy positions to the north of the town with artillery and rocket launchers.

After the failure of their attack, Turkish-backed militants intensified their shelling on Ain Issa and nearby areas. No casualties were reported, however.

A day earlier, a similar attack on Ain Issa was repelled by the SDF. Nevertheless, Turkish shelling on the town injured a number of people.

The repeated attacks by Turkish-backed militants on Ain Issa indicate that Ankara is planning to escalate the situation in northern Raqqa. The Russian Military Police maintains a base in the town, which will likely prevent Turkish forces from making any serious moves there.
