Rural Ras al-Ain (Seri Kanier) | Factional clashes renew, as tension continues between people of rural al-Hasakeh and Turkish-backed factions
SOHR activists say that security tension continues in Ras al-Ain (Seri Kanier) and countryside within the “Peace Spring” areas in al-Hasakeh countryside, following renewed factional clashes in several locations.
The clashes took place in Adwaniyeh area, south-west of Ras al-Ain, between “Ahrar al-Sharqiya” and “Ahrar al-Hasakah Gathering” from al-Adwaniyeh area in Al-Hasakeh countryside.
According to Observatory SOHR, the “Adwan” faction formed by the Adwaniyeh people defected from the Turkish-backed factions, as they did not get their share of the revenues of crossings and checkpoints which impose levies on civilians.
In the meantime, “Ahrar al-Hasakah Gathering” and Turkish-backed military factions from the villages of Hasaka reject the other factions coming from the rest of Syrian provinces to their areas.
Al-Hasaka factions are grouping together to confront Ahrar al-Sharqiya and al-Hamza Division, which includes fighters from Deir ez-Zor, Aleppo, Homs, Damascus and the rest of the Syrian provinces.
Syrian Observatory activists have monitored rising tension in Ras Al-Ain (Sere Kaniye) city and Mabroukah area in its countryside, which are under the control of Turkish forces and their proxies. This tension comes in the wake of the repeated armed fights among Turkish-backed factions, the latest of which erupted yesterday, as SOHR sources reported clashes with machineguns and medium weapons among Turkish-backed factions in Ras al-Ain countryside in “Peace Spring” areas.
Clashes took place between “Ahrar al-Sharqiya” and the “20th Division”, following disagreements over smuggling crossings in the villages of Al-Shatti, Aajeleh and the electricity company in Mabrouka, but no casualties were reported.
