Map: Latest Military Situation in Ras al-Ayn Axis, 29 October 2019
In recent days in despite of ceasefire agreed on by Syria and Russia ground operation was continuing and Turkey’s militia could capture some areas and villages in Ras al-Ayn axis from SDF and Syrian army.
It seems the agreed ceasefire was only about areas between Ras al-Ayn and Tal Abiad and Kurds retreat from there without engagement but due to unclear situation of Ras al-Ayn and its importance, both sides try to stabilize their sovereignty on it.
Anyhow continuing the operation by Turkey-led forces during the 150 hrs ceasefire was against the agreement.
Today at 6 pm local time the ceasefire ended and engagements in Ras al-Ayn axis are continuing heavily.
The main clashes is in Tal Abu Rasin front and Turkey’s militia occupying Um Ashaba, Dawudia, Bab al-Khayr and Amirit trying to claim Tal Abu Rasin and Arab Khan(Tal al-Ward) areas, too.
Also Turkish backed forces captured 12 soldiers of Syrian army recently. In these areas some units of Syrian army fighting alongside Kurdish forces.
