Turkish shelling targets Syria’s northeastern ”Al-Hasakah countryside”


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Friday that Turkish forces and pro-government factions are carrying out rocket bombardment on areas in the village of al-Dirdara in the northeastern Al-Hasakah countryside.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights activists also reported rocket shelling on the village of Al-Dirdara in Tall Temer, in the al-Hasakah province countryside, which is under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and government forces. There were no reports of casualties.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Turkish forces shelled the village of Al-Dirdara in the Tall Temer countryside of Al-Hasakah province on January 2nd. It did not report any casualties.

Earlier this month, military reinforcements from the Syrian Democratic Forces and its military councils arrived in the northwest of al-Hasakah province, where the Tall Temer military council and the Syriac military council reinforced their positions on the Tall Temer and Apurasin fronts with qualitative and artillery weapons of all types with short-, medium- and long-range ranges, in addition to rocket launchers, heavy machine guns and a large number of special forces fighters, according to the same source.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that the SDF has received quality weapons and raised the combat readiness of its fighters in anticipation of any attack or infiltration.

The reinforcements come as Turkish forces and allied factions bring in large groups across the Syrian border.

Syrian reports warned of Turkish military equipment in Ras al-Ain and Tell Abyad in the north of the country to launch an operation against the SDF.
