At the moment, the main battles are fought over the key height of Birsaya, east of the city of Afrin. According to incoming data, it has already been taken several times by the Turkish military, but after a while it was lost. The pro-Turkish detachments of the Free Syrian Army also lead the offensive. They managed to discourage Kurds from several localities.
Against the background of the Turkish invasion of Syria, information appeared in the media about the transfer of additional C-400 air defense systems to the Arab Republic. Two additional complexes were deployed in Latakia, where the Russian logistics center is located, and another two at the Hmeimim airbase.
