The Syrian Democratic Forces’ media center said its members carried out an attack against Turkish troops in the town of Buki, north of Afrin, and killed 15 soldiers and injured others.

It added that they launched another attack on the town of Khalil and killed at least three Turkish soldiers and destroyed two vehicles loaded with explosives.

Neither Turkey nor any other Syrian opposition group confirmed these reports. Meanwhile, Turkish fighters shelled the People’s Protection Units in Dermak Mountain in Afrin, the Anadolu Agency reported.

The Turkish army continues to bring reinforcements to its units that are deployed on the borders with Syria. Turkish army forces and Free Syrian Army troops also seized control of the Ayn Batman Mountain, in northeast Afrin, of the Qorna Mountain and of the town of Bak Obasi.
