Additional troops of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) were deployed on October 26 in the northern al-Hasakah countryside as a part of the recent agreement between the Damascus government and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), SAA troops entered several villages between the town of Tell Tamr and the border town of Ras al-Ayn, including:
al-Qasmiyah, al-Rashidiyah, al-Dawdiyah, al-Aziziyah, al-Sibatiyah, al-Jamiliyah, al-Dahrah, Khrbat al-Dibs and Umm Kayif.
The state-run news agency reported that SAA forces reached the countryside of Ras al-Ayn, occupied by Turkish-backed militants earlier this month, and the border with Turkey.
A day earlier, the SAA began deploying troops along the Turkish border west of the border city of Qamishli, 100 km to the east of Ras al-Ayn.
The army is set to establish 15 observation post along Turkey’s border under a Russian-Turkish agreement that was reached earlier this week.
