Those villages contain a larger number of civilians. Under the rain of the artillery-fire, the jihadist gangs attacked the two mentioned villages and wanted to proceed forwards but were cut off by our fighters who answered to the attack and clashes broke out. The attack was repelled after 2 hours of ongoing clashes. 7 jihadists were killed in the clashes with our forces.
After our forces repelled the attack, the invading Turkish army used artillery-fire against the region and caused huge material damages to the properties of the villagers. Our forces answered to the attack with heavy weapons and targeted a Turkish army base in the vicinity of Meryemin village of Shera town. As a result, 2 Turkish soldiers were heavily injured.
