BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The Turkish military and their allied militants have captured a strategic area along the Syrian border this morning, giving them access to the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) front-lines in northern Al-Hasakah for the first time in years.

Led by the so-called “Syrian National Army”, the Turkish-backed militants reportedly captured the Aliyah Silos along the Aleppo-Hasakah Highway (M-4 Highway) after a fierce battle with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) this morning.

As a result of this advance, the Turkish-backed forces have cutoff another point along the Aleppo-Hasakah Highway, while also giving themselves fire control over some areas controlled by the Syrian Arab Army in the nearby Tal Tamr District of Al-Hasakah.

The Syrian Arab Army has yet to enter the battle for Ras Al-‘Ayn; however, their participation appears imminent at this time, as the militant forces maintain an imperative point in the northwestern countryside of the Al-Hasakah Governorate.

Despite these advances in the Ras Al-‘Ayn countryside, the Turkish-backed militants have been unable to score any gains inside the city itself.

Last night, the Syrian Democratic Forces reported that troops killed and wounded scores of Turkish-backed militants, while also beating back the latter’s attack from the western flank of the city.

Pensé que Rusia iba detener a su aliado Turco, que decepción parece que Putín no va ayudar a Assad, con su pasividad parece que ayudará al terrorista Erdogan y a sus mercenarios.
