Syria’s Ain Issa protests against Russian forces; calm returns to M4 Highway

AIN ISSA, Syria (North Press) – Normal traffic has returned to the M4 Highway in the vicinity of Syria’s Ain Issa, after it was cut off last night as a result of the bombing of Turkish forces and armed opposition groups on the area.

A cautious calm hangs over Ain Issa and the M4 Highway, though residents of the town have gathered in front of the Russian military base to protest Russian silence over the attacks by Turkish forces and opposition groups.

Earlier Friday, a medical source from the town of Ain Issa told North Press that two civilians lost their lives after midnight on Thursday as a result of the collapse of their house during the Turkish bombing.

A source from the town said that military vehicles belonging to the Syrian government headed from the western side to their points in Ain Issa this morning.
