Ras Al-Ayn: 4 people wounded in Turkish artillery fire
(Zaman Al Wasl)- Turkish artillery fire pounded a Kurdish village near the border town of Ras al-Ayn in northeastern Syria, leaving four people wounded, residents told Zaman al-Wasl Thursday.

At least 20 artillery shells hit the village of al-Rabiaat on Wednesday, targeting the Kurdish YPG militants. 
 
The Turkish military and the Syrian National Army attacked Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria on October 9 with the aim of creating a roughly 30-kilometer (20-mile) deep buffer zone.

Kurdish forces agreed to withdraw from a 120-kilometer (75 mile) long, Arab-majority segment of the 440-kilometer (275-mile) border zone, although clashes have been reported since.

Turkey subsequently reached a deal with the Syrian regime's main backer Russia for Kurdish forces to pull back from the entire border area.
