Peace Spring escalated tensions | Wounded in clashes between Ahrar al-Sharqiya an d 20th Division in Ras al-Ain (Sere Kaniye)

Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported violent clashes with different weapons among members of Ahrar al-Sham on one side and the 20th Division on the other in al-Adwaniyah village in Ras al-Ain (Sere Kaniye) countryside under control of Peace Spring areas.

According to SHOR the clashes left at least five wounded from both sides amid ongoing tensions and mobilizations between the two factions in the region.

SOHR activists have reported the tensions have been escalating in south Ras al-Ain (Sere Kaniye) countryside after continuous violations by al-Hamzah division and factions of Turkey-backed National Army.

On the other hand, SOHR activists have reported that members in al-Boshab’an tribe , some of them are also members in Turkey-backed factions lines, have attacked some military headquarter and checkpoint of al-Hamzah Division in al-Maran village in Ras al-Ain (Sere Kaniye) countryside after arrival of large reinforcement for al-Boshab’an tribe amid talks between the dignitaries of the tribe with other tribes in Ras al-Ain and asked them or support in face of the continuous violation by Peace Spring operation factions.

The escalations came after accusations of the al-Boshab’an tribe to gunmen from al-Hamzah Division about kidnapping civilians from the sons of their tribe in Ras al-Ain city countryside, in addition to tensions that took place yesterday in the two villages of al-Makarn, Om Ezzam after al-Boshab’an tribe has detained members of al-Hamzah Division in response to the murder of a young man from al-Hadarah village in Tal Halaf by military leader in al-Hamzah Division twenty days ago when he was shot dead at the frontline of Koua Shalah at the road between Ras al-Ain , but reasons for his death remained unknown.

Yesterday, SOHR activists reported that a teacher was arrested by armed groups of al-Hamza Division, while they were withdrawing from al-Makran and Um Ezam villages in the countryside of Ras al-Ain (Sere Kaniye) in the southern countryside of al-Hasakah.

According to SOHR activists, al-Hamza Division militiamen assaulted the teacher and beat him severely in addition to assaulting his wife when she was trying to rid him of the militiamen’s grip.

Meanwhile, the groups of al-Hamza Division withdrew from al-Makran and Um Ezam villages following the clashes that erupted with al-Bu Sha’ban tribesmen, amid ongoing tension in the region.

Few hours earlier, SOHR activists in “Peace Spring” areas reported that al-Makran and Um Ezam villages in Ras al-Ain (Sere Kaniye) countryside were experiencing growing tension between members of al-Bu Sha’ban tribe and the residents on one hand, and militiamen of the Turkish-backed al-Hamza Division on the other.

According to SOHR activists, the tension raised after al-Bu Sha’ban tribe arrested militiamen of al-Hamza Division over the killing of a young man from al-Hadara village in Tel Halaf by a military commander of al-Hamza Division about 20 days ago. The commander had shot the young man dead at “Koua’ Shalah” checkpoint on the road between Ras al-Ain and al-Aaleya for unknown reasons.

Meanwhile, fierce clashes erupted in al-Makran and Um Ezam villages between armed men of al-Bu Sha’ban tribe and armed groups of al-Hamza Division, after al-Hamza Division had stormed the villages with the aim to set the militiamen detained by al-Bu Sha’ban free. However, no further details were reported about the number of casualties and material damage caused by these clashes.

It is worth noting that the family of the victim had demanded that the perpetrators to be held accountable, but military police in Ras al-Ain did nothing to the killers who remained free.
