The international M4 highway between Hasakah and Aleppo was re-opened for traffic after units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) were fully deployed along its axis, as filmed northwest of Hasakah on Wednesday.

“The international highway is safe from Aleppo directly to Qamishli then Hasakah. The road is entirely safe,” one Ras al-Ein resident said.

“The highway became safe, now we can go to and from Aleppo whenever we want to. May God reward who opened it,” another driver said.

The M4 highway was controlled by Turkish-backed forces since October 13, four days after the beginning of Turkey’s ‘Operation Peace Spring’ military offensive in north-eastern Syria.

The SAA’s deployment follows the withdrawal of US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) from the area in accordance with the agreement reached between Moscow and Ankara in Sochi on October 22.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
