Heavy Clashes Between Syrian Army, Turkish-Backed Militants In Northern al-Hasakah

Heavy clashes between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Turkish-backed militants erupted on January 8 in the northern al-Hasakah countryside, in the country’s northeastern region.

The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that the clashes are taking place around the town of al-Munakh, to the northeast of the town of Tell Tamr. The Turkish artillery is reportedly involved.

“A Turkish aggression with artillery on the village of Umm Harmalah in Ras al-Ayn countryside,” the SANA’s reporter in the region said.

Sources close to Turkish-backed militants claimed that the army launched a small attack from al-Munakh on positions of the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA). However, this is yet to be confirmed.

Earlier today, two car bombs exploded in the Turkish-occupied part of northern al-Hasakah, killing four Turkish service members and several Syrian militants.

The clashes in northern al-Hasakah appear to be limited and very likely a response by Turkey to the death of its four soldiers.
