Syria’s official news agency SANA reported the fighting on Sunday afternoon, saying that the clashes took place after the area came under attack from the Turkish side.
There were no immediate reports about possible casualties.
The development came only three days after Turkish forces and their allies attacked Syrian government troops in northeastern Syria.
SANA said the allies attacked Syrian army positions outside the town of Tal Tamr.
