Russia, SDF Reach Agreement To Protect Tell Tamr In Northern Al-Hasakah: Monitoring Group

Russia has reached an agreement with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to secure the Christian town of Tell Tamir in northern al-Hasakah, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) revealed on November 16.

Sources familiar with the alleged agreement told the UK-based monitoring group that the town will be handed to Syrian government forces.

“The agreement implicates that pro-Turkish factions should withdraw from some villages until the border of Ras al-Ain, as well as from the international M4 highway, while regime forces will be deployed in these areas,” the SOHR quoted one of the sources as saying.

Several Kurdish sources confirmed the SOHR’s report on November 17, revealing that the agreement will also force the SDF to withdraw from Tell Tamr and its countryside. This term was a demand by Ankara, which is reportedly a part of the agreement.

Activists affiliated with the Turkish-backed National Syrian Army (SNA) said that the group’s militants are withdrawing from several villages north of Tell Tamr as a part of the new agreement.

Earlier reports revealed that the Russian Military Police are planning to establish a military post in the town of Tell Tamir or near it.

Tell Tamir witnessed several Turkish-led attacks in the last few weeks. These attacks forced most of the locals to flee. The agreement brokered by Russia could help secure the town and facilitate the return of displaced civilians.

        Even from your twitter news “until now”
        Did you not see this move about to take place?

    Can we provide the links to SOHR or wherever you got this report from Southfront?
    A link to one of your own stories does not count.
    This “news” is probably a fairy story.

    Yeah, sounds like a fairy tale by Kurdish communists, unless official Turkish or Russian news come out.

    All Turktrash goatcunts should either be killed or retreat to Orcistan

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    Kurdish news this morning says the opposite, no deal for the Syriac militia to pull out at all, it’s all a fantasy. The only thing the SDF agreed to was a Russian presence in the town, that’s all, no promises of a SDF pullout, no relinquishing the town to SNA forces, only a deal to cooperate with the SAA in defence of the town has been agreed upon.

    I’m sure Russians will have support from all Syrian Christians

  • RichardD

    Coming from a Yinon plan mouthpiece like the SOHR, it could easily be fake news. And the fact that pro government and official sources are silent on these issues also makes any SOHR or Kurdish reports dubious.
