Pro-Turkish terrorist factions continued to violate the cease-fire and tried to advance towards the axis of north and west of Ain Issa villages to the axis of Al-Chalabia town in Kobane.

Our forces responded to these attempts within the framework of their legitimate right to self-defense and clashed with the terrorists on the axis of the villages of Weibada, Cafiah and Wasita.
