Late on November 24, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) repelled an attack by the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army (SNA) in the northern Raqqa countryside.

The surprise attack targeted the town of al-Malikiyah and the nearby village of Mu’alak. Turkish forces provided SNA militants with fire support. Combat drones were flying over the battlefield. However, no strikes were reported.

Despite the heavy fire support from Turkish forces, SNA militants failed to capture al-Malikiyah and fell onto an ambush set by the SDF.

In an official statement, the SDF said that 18 NSA militants were killed in the attack. Among those was field commander Ismail al-Ido, a former ISIS official.

“During the attacks and the clashes, four of our fighters were also wounded,” the U.S.-backed group acknowledged in its statement.

Upon a request from Russia, whose military police maintain a center in northern Raqqa, the SDF allowed the SNA to retrieve the bodies of its dead fighters from the outskirts of Mu’alak.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the SNA’s deal toll in the failed attack rose to 31 on November 25. Many militants who were wounded during the attack died.

Last week, several Turkish attacks targeted SDF positions in northern Raqqa, mainly near the town of Ain Issa. Ankara’s proxies are apparently planning to escalate their attacks against the SDF. These acts are threatening the security and stability in northeastern Syria.

Accord a Pro Irani media…that attack was failed because Syrian air defense shot down a Turkish drone which was supporting the SNA offensive.

the heading should be NATO attacking NATO because both SDF and Turkish Backed Militants are creations of NATO.


not NATO …. The Gray Wolves and Turkish Backed Militants are organized, patronized, financed and guided into entry operations by the CIA conservative wing and not Erdogan. The Gray Wolves and Turkish Backed Militants are the successor state of Gladio, Stay Bihaid and the Red Sheep. NATO knows that Russia is not the enemy, but China.


All the titles should be the same. No exceptions.


Next front to be open?
