Syrian army artillery opened fire on Tuesday at the positions of Turkey-backed militias in the Bab al-Hawa border region, An-Nashra reported. According to its information, several rockets landed on the Turkish territory without causing any damage.

In turn, a source in the command of the Syrian Armed Forces pointed out that the strikes were carried out in response to the shelling of the military airfield Meneg in the northern Aleppo province, and attacks on the Syrian soldiers stationed in the town of Ain el-Arab (Kurdish name Kobani) on the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

On Nov. 20, Kurdish Democratic Syrian Forces (SDF) spokesman Ferhat Shami told Firat News Agency that 15 government troops who had been deployed to Ain al-Arab in June to repel a possible Turkish invasion had been killed. The SDF itself lost 37 fighters killed and wounded.

Turkish National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said Monday that the republic's Armed Forces neutralized more than 180 members of Kurdish organizations in two days of Operation Sword Claw in Iraq and Syria. The attacks were carried out on the locations of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and the "People's Self-Defense Forces" units that form the backbone of the SDF in Turkey. Turkish authorities have blamed the PKK and Syrian Kurds for the November 13 attack in Istanbul, which killed six people.
