Syrian information service NPA publishes data on an incident in northern Syria. The material reports that the Turkish artillery attacked the positions of the Syrian government forces (SAA) west of the city of Aleppo - in northwestern Syria.
The report says that Turkish troops opened fire after several SAA units attempted to enter positions in the Zaviya mountain range.
