Arsons in Al-Hasakeh | Fires spread to countryside devouring new agricultural crops

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored continued fires in north-eastern Syria. The fire spreads to the villages of Al-Qasimiyah and Al-Rihania north-west of the town of Tal Tamer, reaching the agricultural land adjacent to the station of cows on the road of Ras al-Ain, and the village of Tal Munakh on abu Racine road.

Yesterday, SOHR activists said that the fires devoured agricultural crops in Tal Half, Abu Jaloud and Mabrouka in Al-Hasakeh countryside.

According to Observatory sources, some 10,000 donums were turned into ashes in the western countryside of Al-Hasaka during the day.

A large fire also broke out in the villages of Um Ushbeh and Al-Assadiya, which are on the frontlines between the areas held by SDF and areas controlled by Turkish-backed factions in countryside of Al-Hasakeh province. Meanwhile, Turkish forces and proxy factions did not allow fire crews to approach.

On the other hand, the fires spread to the area of Al-Kasra-Abu Racine junction, on the road of Al-Derbasiya-Ras al-Ain. Fire crews intervened and managed to contain the fire in this area, and in the village of Salam Alik in Al-Derbasiya countryside, where fire crews were able to extinguish it.

SOHR activists have reported that one civilian died 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.
