BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:25 A.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) managed to retake several villages and points near the Turkish border with Syria’s Al-Hasakah Governorate this past weekend, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) announced on Sunday.

According to the report, the SDF recaptured eight villages from the so-called “Syrian National Army” (SNA) in the northwestern countryside of the Al-Hasakah Governorate.

The SOHR report said the Syrian Democratic Forces captured the villages of Al-Dawoudiyah, Al-Sa’id, Rihanah, Al-Sweida, Kanbaher, Abboush, Umm Shu’ayfah, and Faisaliyah after a short battle with the Turkish-backed militants.

They would add that the “SDF is trying to advance at the expense of the national army in the countryside of Tal Tamr, in addition to the entry of troops from Qamishli city, after securing the city through the presence of Russian as well as the U.S. forces.”

The Syrian Democratic Forces recently went on the offensive again near the town of Tal Tamr, following the capture of several areas by the Turkish-backed militants south of Ras Al-‘Ayn.
