The Turkish-backed Syrian National Army (SNA) destroyed in the last 48 hours several positions and equipment pieces of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) around the town of Tell Tamr in northern al-Hasakah with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).
On November 12, SNA militants destroyed a truck-mounted 23 mm heavy machine gun of the SDF with a AT-4 Spigot ATGM. The U.S. had supplied the Free Syrian Army (FSA) with this type of guided missiles.
A day later, Turkish-backed militants destroyed an SPG-9 recoilless gun and a fortified position of the SDF with U.S.-made TOW ATGMs.
The SNA launched a large-scale attack around Tell Tamr last week after accusing Kurdish forces of violating the recent Russian-Turkish agreement on northeast Syria.
The SDF launched a counter attack to recapture several key positions around Tell Tamr late on November 12. However, no advance has been reported yet.
