Landmine attacks | Six Turkish-backed militiamen killed or wounded in rural Tal Tamr
SOHR sources have reported that a landmine went off in a group of Turkish-backed militiamen, while being in a farm in Tal Tamr countryside in “Peace Spring” areas in Al-Hasakah. The explosion killed two militiamen and injured four others.
On August 11, SOHR sources reported that villages in the “Peace Spring” areas in al-Hasakeh countryside experienced infighting among Turkish-backed factions, following a dispute over revenue-sharing of stolen objects they looted from civilian houses in the areas of Ras al-Ain and Tal Tamer.
According to Observatory sources, clashes erupted in the villages of Shallah, Thyabiya and Rayhania between the members of Sultan Murad and Ahrar al-Sharqqiya, as Sultan Murad sold the Ahrar al-Sharqiya’s share of the stolen objects. These clashes coincided with preparations by some members to leave the areas of the “Peace Spring” and to other areas. The clashes resulted in injuries to several members on both sides, some seriously.
