The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) recaptured on November 3 eight villages in the northern al-Hasakah countryside from Turkish-backed militants.
According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the liberated villages are Dawdiyah, al-Sa’id, Riyhana, al-Suwaydiyah, Kanbhr, Abush, Umm Sh’ayfah and Faysaliyah.
“The Syrian Democratic Forces recaptured the eight villages after losing them during clashes with the [Syrian] National Army [SNA] last month,” the SOHR’s report reads.
Earlier, the SAA deployed large reinforcements, including howitzers, rocket launchers and battle tanks, in the Abu Rasin. The town, which is located south of Ras al-Ayn, was captured by the SDF a few days ago.
These recent developments in norther al-Hasakah indicate that the SAA and the SDF are cooperating to counter the ongoing Turkish-led attack.
