To exert pressure on SDF and force it to agree to their demands | Russian forces withdraw from military bases in al-Hasakeh and Raqqa provinces
SOHR sources have reported that the withdrawal of Russian forces from the bases of Ain Issa in Al-Raqqah countryside, and al-Mabaqir in Al-Hasakah countryside, came to exert pressure on SDF after rejecting the demands of the Russian forces and regime forces, including handing over the villages of Al-Ma’alaq, Jahbel, Jabel, Sayda, Al-Mushirfeh and Ain Issa camp near “M4” raod in Ain Issa countryside to the Turkish forces. Therefore, the road between Ain al-Arab in eastern Aleppo countryside and Ain Issa countryside in rural Raqqa will be cut off.
Also, handing over wheat stored in Shirakrak silos to regime forces, where thousands of tons of wheat and barley crops are stored.
In addition, handing over several villages in Ain Issa countryside to regime forces and withdrawal of SDF from them.
According to SOHR sources, SDF rejected these demands, while Russian forces withdrew to force SDF to agree to their demands.
The Syrian Observatory has monitored the withdrawal of Russian forces and the retention of guards for al-Mabaqir base in Tal Tamer countryside in al-Hasakeh province.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored this afternoon a sudden withdrawal of Russian forces from their base in Ain Issa, after lowering the Russian flags, where the withdrawing forces moved to the base of Tal Al-Samin in rural Raqqa, without knowing the reasons. Meanwhile, SDF’s members of relations still located in the military base.
