BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed militants launched a new attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in the northeastern region of Syria on Saturday.
According to reports from northeastern Syria, the Turkish-backed militants opened fire on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in the Tal Tamr countryside, resulting in a fierce clash in this region of the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
The reports did not specify why the Turkish-backed militants targeted the Syrian Arab Army’s positions; however, the clashes have since died down after this morning’s battle.
Since the Turkish-backed forces captured Ras Al-‘Ayn, they have repeatedly violated the ceasefire agreement that was established in October 2019.
The Turkish-backed militants have periodically targeted the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in the Tal Tamr and Abu Rasin areas of Al-Hasakah, which has forced the latter to maintain a big presence in the governorate.
