The Turkish military and the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA) renewed on November 10 their attack on Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions in the northern al-Hasakah countryside.
Heavy clashes are reportedly taking place around the villages of Daldarh, Tell Ward and Arab Khan. The villages, which are also being shelled by Turkish artillery, are located between the towns of Tell Tamr and Ras al-Ayn.
The Kurdish Syrian Hawar News Agency (ANHA) said that the army is responding to the Turkish-led attack with heavy weapons.
“Reconnaissance planes of the Turkish occupation are also flying over the region,” the agency’s reporter in al-Hasakah said.
A day earlier, five Syrian service members were killed and 26 others were injured while repelling a Turkish attack on the village of Umm Sha’Fah. Despite receiving serious losses, the SAA managed to hold onto its positions in the villages.
Turkish forces attacks on the SAA are a blatant violation of Ankara’s recent agreement with Moscow, that welcomes the deployment of Syrian troops in the northeastern region.
