    > BEIRUT – The armies of Syria and Turkey traded deadly fire Tuesday for the first time since Ankara launched an anti-Kurdish offensive in early October, as Russia announced Kurdish forces had withdrawn from the border area.

    > The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that "Heavy fighting erupted for the first time between the Syrian and Turkish armies," adding that six Syrian soldiers were killed near the key border town of Ras al-Ain.

    > Syrian state news agency SANA reported "Turkish mortar fire on the Derbasiyeh border crossing," some 60 km east of Ras al-Ain, and said six Syrian civilians had been wounded.
