Dispute over smuggling areas | Clashes erupt among Turkish-backed factions in Ras Al Ain countryside (Sari Kanier)
The Syrian Observatory has monitored today clashes with machine guns and medium weapons among Turkish-backed factions in Ras al-Ain countryside within the areas of “Peace Spring”. Clashes took place between “Ahrar al-Sharqiya” and Division 20th, following disagreements over smuggling areas in the villages of Al-Shati, Ajleh and power company in Mabrouka, but no casualties have been reported.
On September 10, the Syrian Observatory monitored clashes with light and medium weapons between “Ahrar al-Sharqiya” and “al-Hamza Division” in the villages of Mabrouka, Mahmoudiyah and al-Qasimiyah in the “Peace Spring” areas. No casualties were reported so far.
In the village of Rihanniya in Ras al-Ain countryside, members of the al-Hamza Division opened fire at close range from two women in the village. The members were behaving abnormally as they were under the influence of alcohol or narcotics, according to local sources.
Reliable SOHR sources had said that quarrels erupted between residents and armed groups affiliated to “Al-Hamzat Division” in Al-Rayhana village in Ras Al-Ain countryside (Sere Kaniye) in rural Al-Hasakah. These quarrels come after the residents expressed their rejection to the daily violations by the faction’s militiamen, including thefts, looting, repression, daily raids, and security chaos in the area.
