Al-Hasakah - SMART

On Saturday, five separate landmines exploded near the city of Ras al-Ayn, which is controlled by the Syrian Interim Government’s National Army (SNA), 71 kilometers north of the city of al-Hasakah, Northeastern Syria, injuring three civilians.

A military source from the SNA reported to SMART that five separate explosions took place in the village of Tal Halaf, southwest of Ras al-Ayn, injuring three civilians, who were transported to the Ras al-Ayn Hospital.

The source added that two explosions occurred near a fuel street stand, two others exploded in a truck, while the fifth occurred on the al-Baladiah road. No information about the party responsible for the explosions nor the procedures of the SNA after the incidents were reported, according to the source.

Several unknown explosions occurred in the SNA-controlled areas, targeting Free Syrian Army and Islamist battalions’ commanders and fighters, and resulting in the killing and injuries of dozens of them.
