After closure over Turkish military escalation | Russian forces reopen M4 highway to civilian and commercial traffic

Syrian Observatory activists have reported that Aleppo-Al-Hasakah international highway (M4) is back in service again, as civilian and commercial convoys escorted by Russian patrols have been seen traveling from Ain Issa in northern Al-Raqqah to Tal Tamr in Al-Hasakah countryside.

 

It is worth noting that the highway was opened on December 20, but it was closed again after only one day over the military escalation on the area.

 

On December 23, SOHR sources reported that the eastern section of M4 highway, particularly the part between Ain Issa and Tal Tamr linking to the rest areas of Al-Hasakah and Aleppo, was closed for commercial and civil movement in the wake of the recent military escalation by Turkish forces and their proxy factions on the region. It is worth noting that the highway was opened on December 20, but it was closed again after only one day, as Turkish-backed factions stationed at Sherkrak silos attacked civilian and commercial vehicles and the Russian patrol escorting them, where exchange of fire took place, leading to the closure of the highway.

 

Reliable SOHR sources confirmed that the Russians decided to suspend both commercial and civilian traffic on the highway until the cessation of the Turkish military escalation on Ain Issa town and countryside.
