BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 A.M.) – The Russian military police recently sent reinforcements to the Al-Hasakah Governorate, following a string of attacks carried out by the Turkish Armed Forces and their allied militants.
According to a local military source, the Russian reinforcements were deployed to the front-line area of the Tal Tamr area, where they are tasked with monitoring the ceasefire in the western countryside of the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
The source said the Russian military police entered the Tal Tamr area with armored vehicles and deployed to the areas controlled by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
The Turkish Armed Forces and their allied militants have been targeting Tal Tamr nearly everyday this year, which has prompted the Russian military police to deploy more troops to this area in order to quell the hostilities.
While the Turkish Armed Forces reached an agreement in October of 2019 to halt their hostilities east of the Euphrates, they have continued to carry out operations and attacks against the Syrian Democratic Forces.
It is not clear if the Turkish Armed Forces and their allied militants will launch any offensive in western Al-Hasakah in the near future; however, if they choose to, they run the risk of running into the Russian military police, who are deeply embedded there.
