Turkish military seizes control of Ras al-Ayn

The Turkish armed forces have captured the key position in northern Syria within their ongoing offensive, the country's Ministry of Defense announced on Saturday.

"Ras al-Ayn’s residential center has been taken under control through the successful operations in the east of the Euphrates (River)," the Ministry wrote on its official Twitter account.

The announcement was also confirmed by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which added that fighting between the Turkish and allied Syrian opposition forces, on the one side, and the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), on the other, is still ongoing, despite Washington's warning that Ankara is risking "powerful sanctions" over its actions.
