Al-Hasakah - SMART

On Thursday, the Syrian National Army (SNA) shelled villages in the Tal Tamr area, 38 kilometers northwest of al-Hasakah, Northeastern Syria, killing two Syrian government forces members and injuring a civilian.

Local sources reported to Bawaba al-Jazeera (one of SMART media projects) that the SNA targeted a Syrian government forces base using mortar shells. The base is located in a gas station between the villages of Abu Rasen and al-Rabiat, northern al-Hasakah. The shelling killed two Syrian government forces members and injured a civilian in al-Rabiat.

The sources added that the shelling lasted for two hours and targeted the villages of Tal al-Ward, Arab Khan, and al-Rabiat, which are located between Tal Tamr and Abu Rasen.

On Nov. 9, 2019, a Turkish shelling on the villages of Tal Tamr area killed and injured more than 20 Syrian government forces members. The shelling also injured a reporter of pro-Syrian government T.V channel.

On Oct. 22, 2019, Russia and Turkey agreed on the withdrawal of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) from the Safe-Zone in Syria. The agreement also included deploying Turkish-Russia patrols in the same area. After this agreement, Turkey announced stopping its military campaign launched on Oct. 9, 2019 against the SDF. During the operation, Turkey and the SNA gained control of the cities of Tal Abyad and Ras al-Ayn, in addition to dozens of villages in the al-Raqqa and al-Hasakah governorates.
