  • Shells still fall in northeast Syria despite pause agreement
Sharjah 24 – Reuters: The Kurdish-led SDF militia on Friday accused Turkey of shelling civilian areas in violating a five-day pause to an offensive in northeast Syria.
"Despite the agreement to halt the fighting, (Turkish) air and artillery attacks continue to target the positions of fighters (and) civilian settlements," militia spokesman Mustafa Bali said.

He said Turkish forces had shelled the town of Ras al Ain.

Shelling could be heard at the countries' border on Friday morning despite the ceasefire, agreed between Turkey and the United States.
