RNA - Several Turkish Army soldiers and their allied militants were killed in two military operations by the Kurdish forces in Afrin in Western Aleppo, media reports said.


The Kurdish-language Hawar News reported that military vehicles, carrying Turkish Army soldiers and Ankara-backed terrorists, was destroyed in the village of Koubeleh in the Center of Afrin during the Syrian Democratic Forces' military operations against the Turkish Army and Ankara-backed militants.

It noted that two Turkish soldiers were killed and four others were wounded while a military vehicle and military equipment were also destroyed.

The Kurdish fighters, meantime, pounded and destroyed a military headquarters of Ahrar al-Sham terrorists in the village of Deir Moshamash in the Center of Afrin which resulted in death of two Ahrar al-Sham terrorists and injury of three others.

Deir Ezzur

Several more people were killed and many more wounded in the US-led coalition air raids on a convoy of civilians in Southeastern Deir Ezzur.

"The US-led fighter jets targeted and hit a group of civilians who were trying to escape from the ISIL-controlled region in the town of Baghouz in Southeastern Deir Ezzur," local sources in Eastern Syria were quoted as saying on Wednesday.

The sources noted that the entire eight members of a Syrian family, three women and five children, were killed in the US airstrikes and many more were wounded.

They also said that the death toll will probably rise given the deteriorating conditions of those injured.

The sources noted that most of the vehicles in the convoy were destroyed in the air raid.


Tens of dead bodies of the victims of the US-led airstrikes and the ISIL's crimes were discovered from the debris of ruined buildings and mass graves in Raqqa, media sources said.

Media activists said the corpses of four civilians were retrieved from the debris of buildings ruined in US airstrikes last year in al-Sokna district of Raqqa city.

Moreover, four dead bodies of civilians were recovered from the buildings destroyed in US air assaults in al-Bayatareh in Raqqa city, the activists added.

They also said that the corpses of about 50 people, including women and children, were discovered from a mass grave in al-Fakhikheh South of Raqqa city.

This is while the ISIL had taken control over several villages and al-Tabaqa military airport in Southwestern Raqqa in 2014.

Hama, Idlib

The Syrian Army heavily pounded and destroyed the gatherings and military convoys of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) and their allied militants before they could attack the safe zones in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib.

According to Fars News Agancy, the Syrian Army's artillery and missile units targeted and destroyed the movements and military equipment of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay'at and Haras al-Din terrorists in al-Tah, Sakik, al-Latamanieh, outskirts of Ma'arat al-Numan in Southern and Southeastern Idlib.

A military source also said that the terrorists were trying to launch massive attacks on Syrian Army's military positions in Southern Idlib and Northern Hama by dispatching several military convoys to Southern Idlib, adding that however a large number of terrorists were killed and others retreated to their positions in Southern Idlib after the Syrian Army's offensive.

In Northern Hama, the Syrian Army's artillery and missile units heavily pounded the military positions and movements of Jeish al-Izza terrorists in the surrounding areas of Hasraya and al-Arbaeen towns in Northern Hama, destroying several of their positions and killing a number of them.

The Syrian Army troops also targeted the movements of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay'at from the Eastern side of al-Latamanieh town in Northern Hama, inflicting heavy losses on the terrorists.

Syrian Borders

A number of notorious commanders close to ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi were killed in Iraqi army airstrikes on militants' positions in al-Anbar province near the border with Syria.

"The Iraqi air force fighter jets raided the ISIL's military positions in the city of al-Ratabeh in Western al-Anbar (near Syria borders), killing several terrorists, including five ISIL commanders," the Arabic-language Maloumeh news website quoted an informed source as saying on Wednesday.

The source reiterated that the killed militants were among senior ISIL commanders and very close to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
