Arsons | Turkish-backed factions set hundreds of donums of wheat crop on fire in rural Al-Hasakeh and Manbij
The Syrian Observatory has monitored today the ongoing fires in north-eastern Syria. A fire broke out in the villages of Ba’irir, Hiit Al-Safih, Al-Aziza and Fathallah in Tal Tamer countryside, as Turkish-backed factions targeted the wheat crops with incendiary bullets.
A fire also broke out in Tal Baydar, and another one in Tal Hamish, east of Al-Qamishli, as a result of the burning of a combine harvester. 200 donums of wheat were set on fire.
On the other hand, Turkish-backed factions opened fire on agricultural land in the village of Yashli, and the villages of Um Adaseh and Um Jalud. Some 250 donums of wheat and barley crops were burned down, as well as a number of citizens’ houses.
Yesterday, reliable sources informed the Syrian Observatory that Turkish-backed factions of the “National Army”, have committed new arsons in agricultural crops in the villages of Anik al-Hawa, Al-Qasimiyah and Al-Rihania, north of Tal Tamer in the countryside of Al-Hasakeh, in addition to burning down some civilians’ houses. Meanwhile, fire crews were unable to reach the fires as they were targeted by snipers of Ankara-backed factions.
