SYRIAN WAR REPORT – JANUARY 30, 2018: SDF SENDS REINFORCEMENTS TO AFRIN

On January 29, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces fully secured the town of Abu al-Duhur in eastern Idlib after a series of clashes with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda).

Meanwhile, pro-militant sources reported that the Syrian Air Force and the Russian Aerospace Forces started conducting airstrikes in the area of Saraqib in a move described as a preparation for the upcoming SAA offensive there.

Overnight on January 30, a Turkish military convoy reportedly reached the area of Al-Eis in southern Aleppo in order to establish an observation point there. According to the media wing of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), several vehicles of the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) are now stationed there.

The Turkish Armed Forces and Turkish-backed militant groups have so far failed to achieve any notable progress against the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the Afrin area since they re-entered Bursaya Mount. An intense fighting is ongoing.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are going to send reinforcements to help the YPG fighting the Turkish Army. On January 29, the SDF’s Syriac Military Council officially announced that it will send its fighters to Afrin.
