BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has deployed to several areas in the northwestern countryside of the Al-Hasakah Governorate, a source from the military told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the Syrian Army has deployed to several towns in the Tal Tamr District of Al-Hasakah, including Al-Aharis and Manajeer.

The purpose of this deployment, the source said, was to prevent the Turkish Army and their militant allies from further expanding in the Al-Hasakah Governorate as they try to capture the strategic city of Ras Al-‘Ayn.

Since the start of their military incursion into Syria, the Turkish Army and their allied militants have repeatedly tried to capture Ras Al-‘Ayn from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF); however, their attempts have failed, as the latter refuses to yield the city.

Furthermore, the recent arrival of reinforcements to Ras Al-‘Ayn have proven incredibly important for the Syrian Democratic Forces, as they have fulfilled their manpower needs inside the city.

The Turkish military is seeking to capture Ras Al-‘Ayn after their troops managed to seize the border town of Tal Abyad in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

As Trevor Noah would so aptly say : “so much news, so little time”. ALl I know is I’m gonna order a Trump poster very, very soon if he keeps on being such an overt , improbable destroyer of imperialist traditions from his own country 😀 Such a baffling experience to witness how drastically quick all of those once-in-a-lifetime, golden-plated geopolitical ambitions are going to waste literally by the hour, gosh let me take my breath FFS, the national map is being redrawn too fast… and too “national reddish” for my poor eyes to follow xD The Don Douche indeed… Read more »
