The Turkish military and the so-called National Syrian Army (NSA) advanced on October 13 west of the town of Ras al-Ayn in the northern al-Hasakah countryside, capturing several villages along the border with Turkey.

Turkish forces imposed control of the villages of Tell Khanzir, Khirbit al-Banat, al-Baluja, al-Aziziyah, Abu al-Sun, Mukhtlah and Mruriyah without facing any serious resistance from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

At the same time, Turkish forces advanced south of Ras al-Ayn cutting the main road leading to the town in what appears to be an attempt remaining Kurdish forces there.

A day earlier, militants of the NSA stormed Ras al-Ayn, capturing key positions in the town’s northern part. However, SDF fighters launched a counter-attack hours later and managed to recapture much of the town by the morning of October 13.

Despite the SDF’s fierce resistance, Turkish forces will likely capture the town in the upcoming few hours. Earlier, the border town of Tell Abyad, 120 km to the west, fell into the hands of Turkish forces.
