ElDorar’s correspondent reported artillery and rocket launchers belonging to the al-Assad regime stationed in towns of Kevin and Mayer, Aleppo northern countryside supported elements of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) during the battles erupted today and yesterday with the Free Syrian Army, nearby Tal Rifat.

The last two days have seen violent clashes between factions of the #EuphratesShield backed by Turkish Air Force, vs (PYD) militia in an attempt to retake control of Tal Rifat, the occupied city by PYD militias as well as tis vicinity.

Our correspondent quoted military sources who assure that PYD announces  the funeral today in the city of Afrin for more than 23 elements who were killed in the clash with the Free Syrian Army factions, while artillery shelling and rockets of the al-Assad regime still target the city of Mare` and its outskirts to ease the PYD’s fighters.

The Euphrates Shield operations were forced to divert their direction towards the city of Tal Rifat and its vicinity area after the PYD’s efforts seeks to seize control of the villages in South Mare` and to cut the operations’ progress towards the strategic city of al-Bab.
