Support SouthFront

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) launched on November 15 a large-scale attack on Turkish-occupied areas in the northern al-Hasakah countryside, according to the Xeber 24 outlet.

The news outlet reported that the joint forces had recaptured the village of al-Manakh from the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army (SNA). The attack is now focused on the villages of al-Faysaliyah, Umm Sha’Fah and al-Arisha.

At least 50 Turkish-backed militants are now reportedly besieged by the SAA and the SDF inside al-Faysaliyah. Turkish forces responded to this with intense shelling.

“As a result [of the shelling] there were one martyr and two wounded from Syrian regime forces,” Xeber 24 reporter reads.

A day earlier, SNA militants advanced in northern al-Hasakah, capturing al-Arisha and several positions around it. The attack was backed by the Turkish military.

These repeated attacks by the SNA in northern al-Hasakah violate Turkey’s recent agreements with both Russia and the US. Ankara expressed dissatisfaction with the implementation of both agreements.

Himayat Allah, SAA.

Mustafa Mehmet

You deal with Israel and the rest then turkiye.

Mustafa, I think that the main problem is that commanders of both SDF and SNA are still connected with the USA. And, of course, you know that Al-Malhama will start at the north of Syria. Looks like we are several steps before it.


It is rumored that both the Turks and their SNA trash have fled the village. Because they where in fear of a Syrian Grad rocket strike. :)

Just rumors my friend, like this fake “story” from Xeber 24tr, i challenge you to find it if you can? https://xeber24.org/en/home Southfront love to put up stories but never give direct links …. i wonder why? Just wishful thing for the gullible.

Assad is weakling, he needs Russian air force and Wagner or he is nothing, his air forces still drop barrel bombs from helicopters for gods sake. He has to kiss Putin’s hand first to do anything.

Mehmet Aslanak

Those are all fake news, there are no syrian troops in the vicinity. Only kurdish workers party guerilla, but odds are against them so they had to spread lies like syrian troops are there, or burma health workers, foreign journalists, christian civilians, santa clause, blah blah…


“These repeated attacks by the SNA in northern al-Hasakah violate Turkey’s recent agreements with both Russia and the US.”

This wouldn’t be my read of the MOU. The SDF isn’t supposed to be in the buffer zone. And if they are, it’s to implement the Yinon plan forever war.


“If the Kurds did not withdraw as per the deal between Moscow and Ankara, Peskov said that Syrian borders guards and Russian military police would have to withdraw, leaving the Kurds to be dealt with by the Turkish army.”

– Kremlin says U.S. betrayed Kurds in Syria, tells Kurds to withdraw or be mauled –
