First attack of its kind on “Peace Spring” areas | Regime forces shell positions of Turkish forces and factions in Tel Tamr countryside

Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported that regime forces have fired several rockets on posts and positions of the Turkish forces and their proxies in al-Qasemiya and other frontlines in Tel Tamr countryside. However, no casualties have been reported yet.

 

According to SOHR sources, the bombardment came at Russian forces’ orders after a Russian helicopter was attacked in the region by Turkish forces a few hours ago.

 

It is worth noting that this was the first attack by regime forces on Turkish forces and the factions in “Peace Spring” areas since they captured that region in October 2019.

 

Earlier today, SOHR activists reported that the Turkish forces targeted with anti-helicopters missile a Russian helicopter while hovering on al-Derdarah village in north Tal Tamr in Al-Hasakah countryside, but it failed to hit it.

 

The Russian helicopter reacted with firing thermal balloons and withdrew from the region which coincided with heavy rocket fire by the national army factions on the same village, but no casualties were reported.
