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.

While the SDF continues to recapture territory from Turkish-backed militants, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is working to fortify these newly-liberated areas.

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.
