On the past day, an Internet portal controlled by the Kurds declared that members of the Popular Self-Defense Detachments (YPG) had claimed responsibility for organizing an explosion in the south-west of the canton of Afrin. As reported by the news agency Al Masdar News, as a result of the detonation of an explosive device planted on the side of the road, the car of the Islamist formation Failac Al-Sham, as well as several militants of the group were destroyed.

For the first time in the past ten months, a UN humanitarian convoy arrived in the occupied territories of the United States in the zone of the American military base At-Tanf, thanks to which residents of the Rukban refugee camp received food kits, as well as medicines and essential items. The head of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Parties, Vladimir Savchenko, noted that the cargo, with a total weight of about 450 tons, was accompanied by Russian military police. Recall that about a week ago, the delivery of humanitarian aid was disrupted, because the United States, which controls the so-called security zone, could not provide security guarantees to the UN convoy, transferring the right to escort the convoy to the pro-American anti-government group Jaish Magawir At-Taura.

In the southeast of Deir-ez-Zor, armed clashes between the “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) and the jihadists of the “Islamic State” did not subside during the day.

The use of banned white phosphorus by the coalition has become noticeably more frequent, as a result of which the Syrian authorities have been forced to turn to the UN Security Council so that the international community can condemn the actions of the United States. In the afternoon, it also became known that, under the blows of the Western alliance, three children were killed in the city of Al-Sha’af. On the eve of the SAR, the Iraqi People’s Mobilization Force was deployed to minimize the risk of Islamists penetrating Iraq. This was reported on Twitter by a military source (VivaRevolt). Also, it was reported that reinforcements of the Syrian Arab Army (CAA) were being reinforced in the border area in order to prevent possible attacks by terrorists through the Euphrates.

The SOHR news agency reported that after the attacks of Islamists in residential areas of Jurin and Ma’an settlements, parts of the Syrian Arab Army (CAA) returned fire on the fortifications of jihadists in the vicinity of the cities of Al-Latamin and Sukeik. It was noted that the continuing provocations by the Islamists are forcing the SAR forces to bring their troops into a state of increased combat readiness, despite the fact that there is a ceasefire on the contact line of the forces of the parties. forces and government units. According to the news agency Al Masdar News, the strongholds of the people’s self-defense detachments (YPG) in the city of Tel-Abyad were under artillery fire of the Turkey. Nevertheless, no information about the losses of Kurds in manpower or military equipment has yet been reported. As previously reported, Ankara seeks to get rid of the threat in the face of Kurdish troops near its borders. Recall, on the border, the Turks more than once detained members of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), trying to get into the territory of the Turkish Republic.
A joint patrol of the US special forces and members of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) recognized by many States. This was reported on Twitter by a military source (leventkemaI). Thus, the United States not only does not adhere to the terms of the agreement reached with Turkey on the withdrawal of Kurdish militants from Manbij, but also provides support to radical Kurdish forces. Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced preparations for a full-scale military operation to create a buffer zone to the east of the Euphrates. The reason for this was the non-fulfillment of the conditions of the Manbij Treaty, as well as the strengthening by Kurds of strongholds on the border with Turkey.
