Al-Hasakah | After targeting Russian helicopter by Turkish forces, Russian forces bring in military reinforcement to their base in Tel Tamr
Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported that Russian forces have brought in military reinforcement, this afternoon, from Ain Issa to the Russian base in “al-Mabaqer” area in northern Tel Tamr in al-Hasakah countryside. The reinforcement comprised covered military vehicles and armoured vehicles.
This development came after the Turkish forces’ attack on a Russian helicopter in the same area.
Yesterday, SOHR activists reported that regime forces 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 were reported.
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 yesterday, 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.
