On November 10, Ruptly video news agency released footage of the ongoing clashes between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Turkish forces in the northern al-Hasakah countryside.
The footage shows SAA battle tanks pounding the positions and equipment of Turkish-backed militants around the key town of Tell Tamr.
The clashes erupted in the morning when militants of the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA) launched an attack on SAA positions in the villages of Daldarh, Tell Ward and Arab Khan with support from the Turkish military.
A day earlier, a similar attack by Turkish forces claimed the lives of five Syrian service members and injured 26 others.
These Turkish attacks on the SAA violate Ankara’s agreement with Russia on northeastern Syria. Under the agreement, Syrian troops should establish several positions in the region.
