BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:10 P.M.) – The Turkish Army resumed their strikes against the Kurdish-led forces in northern Syria, today, targeting the latter’s positions in the eastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate.

According to reports from the Aleppo countryside, the Turkish Army and their rebel allies launched several artillery shells and rockets towards the positions of the Al-Bab Military Council, hitting a number of sites inside the town of Al-Baghouz Al-Shaqiya.

No casualties were reported by the Al-Bab Military Council of the Syrian Democratic Forces.

In the meantime, local sources said that the Turkish Army has dispatched around 70 military vehicles to the eastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate.

The sources said these Turkish military vehicles were mostly deployed to areas along the front-lines with the Syrian Democratic Forces and Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG).

and now, are YPG supposed to be scared by a scattering of dispersed armoured cars by Turkey? Were they concentrated at one point, it might mean something. Now less than zero.
