The Russian Ministry of Defense has deployed additional military units in northern Syria, due to the tense situation, with the intensification of the clashes between the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Turkish-backed FSA.

The deputy director of the Center for the Reconciliation of the Conflict Parties in Syria, Vyacheslav Sitnik, who is also in charge of the Russian Ministry of Defense, said in a statement on Sunday:

“Additional units of the Russian military police arrived today to intensify stabilization efforts in the Ain Issa region.”

Sitnik said destabilizing actions had been recorded in the Ain Issa region, adding that “agreements had been reached in the past during negotiations with the Turkish side to establish joint Russian-Syrian points.”

The deputy director of the Center called on the parties involved in the exchange of fire to de-escalate immediately.
