Turkish military shelled Syria’s northern Raqqa injured civilians

AIN ISSA, Syria (North Press) – Two civilians were injured on Sunday, due to a shelling by Turkish military and its backed armed opposition groups on Ain Issa, northern Raqqa, north Syria.

The shelling targeted the town and the surrounding villages, local sources from Ain Issa stated.

The shelling resulted in the injury of two civilians, who were hospitalized for treatment without reports about their conditions, the source added.

Turkish forces and its backed armed opposition groups set up on Thursday, a military base near Ain Issa.  

Local sources told North Press that the military base was located in the village of Seida, north of Ain Issa, about 100 meters north of the M4 Highway.

Ain Issa includes points for the Syrian government forces and a base for Russian forces, which were established following understandings with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) last year during the Turkish invasion on northern Syria.
