Turkish military in NE Syria | Turkish forces turn military post into base in rural Tel Tamr and establish new base near areas controlled by SDF and regime forces

Reliable SOHR sources in Tel Tamr area in Al-Hasakah countryside say that Turkish forces are turning their military post in Tel Mannakh into a military base, as they are digging and enlarge the post, along with erecting soil barriers and bringing in military and logistical supplies.

 

SOHR sources have also reported that Turkish forces have established a new military base in Rashidiyah village in north-western Tel Tamr, nearly four kilometers away from positions of Syria Democratic Forces and regime forces in Al-Kouliyyah village in Tel Tamr countryside.

 

On Friday, SOHR sources reported that the area of Ain Issa in the northern countryside of Al-Raqqah was experiencing unprecedented movements by all military powers there, as SOHR activists monitored the arrival of new reinforcement by regime forces to their bases in the 93rd Brigade in Ain Issa for the third consecutive day, including military vehicles, soldiers, weapons and ammunition.

 

Russian forces, however, conducted reconnaissance tours and sent military vehicles and soldiers to a military base, nearly four kilometres to the south of Ain Issa district. It is worth noting that this base had belonged to the International Coalition during its military operations against ISIS, then it was turned into a military academy of the Internal Security Forces “Asayish”, then regime forces stationed in it, before the Russians brought in military vehicles and soldiers in the past few hours and days. It was expected that the Russians would be stationed in this base.

 

On the other hand, Turkish forces continue their movements in the surrounding areas of Ain Issa, including the boosting of their positions and erecting soil barriers on a daily basis, as well as bringing in vehicles and reinforcement to their positions nearby Ain Issa. The latest Turkish movements in the region included erecting of soil barriers and bringing in vehicles and soldiers to the western frontlines of Ain Issa. However, it is not known if Turkey prepares to establish a new military base or these movements come as a part of routine reinforcement.

 

It is worth noting that Ain Issa district has strategic importance with its important junction linking between Aleppo and Al-Hasakah.
