On Saturday, Turkish forces and their affiliated armed opposition groups renewed their shelling on the outskirts of Ain Issa town, north of Raqqa.

Turkish forces fired illuminating mortars on Saturday night – Sunday over the town of Ain Issa, in conjunction with their shelling of the outskirts of the town, according to a military source.

On Friday, Turkish forces and their armed factions bombed the vicinity of Ain Issa, killing two civilians from one family in the village of Mushairfa.

Two Turkish shells landed in the vicinity of the Russian base at the eastern edge of the town on Friday during a protest by residents of Ain Issa against the Russian silence towards the continued Turkish bombing of the area.
