A large unit of the Russian Military Police arrived in the afternoon of October 27 in the town of Tell Tamr in the northern al-Hasakah countryside in northeast Syria.
The North Press Agency (NPA) released a video showing dozens of Russian armored vehicles and trucks heading to thetown. The Russian convoy was escorted by personnel of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and local Kurdish forces.
Earlier today, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced that their units will withdraw 32 km away from the border with Turkey in accordance with the recent Russian-Turkish agreement.
Meanwhile, SAA continued to deploy units in the northern al-Hasakah countryside, reaching the border with Turkey east of the occupied town of Ras al-Ayn.
The Russian Military Police will likely conduct joint patrols with SAA troops between Tell Tamr and Ras al-Ayn’s eastern countryside. The Russian-Turkish agreement dictates that only these two forces should be deployed on the border with Turkey.
