BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed militants in northern Syria have managed to capture half of Ras Al-‘Ayn after a week-long battle with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

According to reports from northern Syria, the Turkish-backed militants were able to score an advance inside of Ras Al-‘Ayn this morning after Turkish jets repeatedly hammered the Syrian Democratic Forces’ positions.

However, despite the powerful onslaught, the Syrian Democratic Forces have yet to concede the city to the militants; instead, they have remained steadfast in their desire to hold Ras Al-‘Ayn at all costs.

While they face a potential siege, the Syrian Democratic Forces have managed to inflict heavy losses in the ranks of the so-called “Syrian National Army”; this has forced the latter to change up their assault plan.

Outside of Ras Al-‘Ayn, the Turkish-backed militants have achieved far more success, as their troops captured several sites in northwestern Al-Hasakah, including the Al-Alia Silos which overlook the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in the nearby Tal Tamr District.
