BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have launched a counter-offensive in northeastern Syria today as they look to retake the areas they lost to the Turkish-backed militants.

According to early reports, the Syrian Democratic Forces launched their attack from the town of Qassimiyah in a bid to retake the town of Arishah and its surrounding points, which were captured by the Turkish-backed militants on Friday.

A source near the front-lines said the Turkish-backed militants have managed to foil the first two attacks in the area; however, the Syrian Democratic Forces are now preparing another big assault on the enemy defense.

Earlier in the day, the Turkish-backed militants captured the town of Arishah and its corresponding points after launching an attack in the northern countryside of Tal Tamr.

I do believe Turks are going to take 2 or 3 towns with approval of Syria to resettle the anti Assad Syrians but these other areas need to be defended more robustly. They are stretched a bit thin currently as they’re securing the border. Goons are taking advantage. Syria is attempting to get oil /gas fields back as a priority. Got no inside information ,just a hunch.
