Turkish Forces Launch Surprise Attack On Ain Issa Countryside In Northern Raqqa (Videos)

Support SouthFront

The Turkish military and the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA) launched on November 23 a surprise attack on Kurdish forces around the key town of Ain Issa in northern Raqqa.

According to the Hawar News Agency (ANHA), Turkish forces are attacking the villages of Saida, Mu’laq and al-Wasta west of Ain Issa. Heavy clashes are reportedly taking place around the three villages.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the Turkish-led attack had forced the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to withdraw from several posts around Ain Issa. This claim has not been verified, yet.

Earlier this month, Russian forces and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) established a coordination and operations center in the vicinity of Ain Issa.

The attack on the town’s outskirt violates Turkey’s recent agreements with Russia and the U.S, which established a ceasefire regime in the region.

Putin is a treacherous Zionist pig.

Free man

And you have Putinphobia.

David Parker

The Russian people led by Putin and the people of Iran are the principal reasons the Zionist-controlled CIA-recruited-and-paid head-choppers were unable to conquer Syria.

Nice joke, thanks.

David Parker

You are the joke except you keep falling flat.

Jens Holm

Not at all. Assads has been able to kill all possible replacements. There is no lack of Syrian people, which dont prefare Assads.

Its the same for Iraq. Many politicians in USA thought they would be met by american flags there., but people didnt wish what USA did.

In numbers FSA was a good replacement for Assads, but the political Leaders as well as the miitary ones all were second class. It collapsed and the only organized took over having the Sharia structure.

Struckture is very important as well as many good Leaders.

Look at ISIS. They had Leaders for all posts as in a already created real state.

And SDF as second choise for their part. The Marxist structure is very simple and working very well because its advanced and even simple to understand.

The main reason was, that FSA was as weak as its role as opposition was. They had no polical projekt people could add to.

So people has gathered around Jihadisme and later on SDFs against ISIS and partly Assad Sad Asses.

As outsider I thonk the boycuts of Syria and Iran should continue as well as we should tell Damaskus and Teheran and mainly their inhabitants whats needed to change to the better.

Assads? Your programmer needs to bone up on the rules of grammar and logic. Socialism never has “worked” and never will because it is counter to human nature and to God’s established order of working for a living and owning property. it is not only an economic impossibility it is immoral as well As Solzhenitsyn pointed out, socialism inevitably becomes totalitarianism.

Kindly correct the news; “The Turkish military and the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA) launched on November 24 a surprise attack on Kurdish forces around the key town of Ain Issa in northern Raqqa.” Today is November 23rd & you have used a past tense :) I guess tomorrow’s fake news readied from today, since tomorrow is holiday.

David Parker

The “UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR)” is one man in a basement in London, who wears a white hat. He far removed from reality. Why do you continue to quote him?

Jens Holm

There we go again. They know a lot because Internet and mobilphones can connect from the whole world and does.

You are like mailmen with stamps and pigions. Idiot. I even will say, You probatly are high censures, and they are not.

Stop that lying crap. Things never will change to the better unless, facts are used as such and somuch here never should have been allowed.

Free speach isnt meant for Your crap.

David Parker

Do you work at being stupid? It’s hard to imagine you haven’t given you present level.

Coventry it is, not London and it is above a shop; they only say London to try and impress.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

Here’s some additional info from SANA,

“Raqqa, SANA_ The Turkish occupation forces on Saturday launched a fierce attack on Ayn Issa town in the northern Raqqa countryside. SANA reporter said that “forces of the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries of terrorists launched a fierce attack with various types of artillery and rocket shells on residential neighborhoods in Ayn Issa town in the northern Raqqa countryside, causing considerable damage to citizens’ property, public facilities and infrastructure.” The reporter added that the violent attack led to the displacement of people for fear of committing massacres against them. In the same context, local sources said that Turkish occupation forces are setting up what seems to be a new base for them 4 km east of Ras al-Ayn, with military engineering vehicles flattening the terrain and setting up dirt barriers. Local sources also said that tens of families headed from Turkey to Ras al-Ayn, many of whom are dressed in the Afghani fashion that Daesh (ISIS) terrorists adopt, and a large number of them settled in the southern part of the city. The sources reported that terrorists under the command of the Turkish occupation forces abducted two civilians from al-Mubarakia village in Abu Rasain area. On Friday, a number of civilians were martyred and others were injured in a new attack by the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries from terrorist organizations on the countryside of Ras al-Ayn in parallel with the Turkish regime’s continued reinforcement of positions of its occupying forces on Syrian territory by sending logistic materials”.
