Al-Hasakeh’s fire | One civilian dies and another injured while trying to extinguish raging fires in countryside
SOHR activists have reported that one civilian was killed and another injured while trying to extinguish fires in agricultural crops in SDF-held village of Al-Assadiya near the frontlines with the areas controlled by Turkish-backed factions.
The area near the frontlines is witnessing successive fires which quickly spread to adjoining areas.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored today the outbreak of new fires in countryside of Tal Tamer and Abu Rasin (Zarkan), north of Al-Hasakeh. The fires spread from the agricultural land of Um al-Kif to the villages of Bab al-Khair, Al-Assadiya and Um Ushba in the northern countryside of Tal Tamer, causing significant damage to citizens’ property, while no one was able to contain and extinguish the fires.
On May 24, civil sources informed the Syrian Observatory that members of the Turkish-backed factions continue to set crops and agricultural projects on fire in countryside of Tal Tamer. Locals saw them committing arsons in the villages of Al-Qasimiyah, Um al-Khair and other areas in countryside of Tal Tamer.
Meanwhile, the fires caused extensive damage to crops and equipment of agricultural projects, such as water extraction engines, other agricultural machinery, water tanks and homes of citizens in that area.
