For second day | Russian military exercises and maneuvers with participation of aircraft in north-east Syria

SOHR activists have reported seeing Russian helicopters flying over Tel Abyad countryside near the frontlines with Turkish forces and their proxy factions in the “Peace Spring” areas.

 

According to sources, the Russian forces have conducted military maneuvers with life ammunition in Euphrates region in north and east Syria, as fighter jets take part in these maneuvers. The military activities entered the second consecutive day, as it had started on Sunday in Tal Tamr town.

 

Yesterday, reliable sources informed the Syrian Observatory that regime forces were conducting military manoeuvres with live ammunition in Tel Tamr district in northern al-Hasakah, with the participation of Russian fighter jets which were seen flying at a low altitude over the region, along with launching flares. SOHR activists had reported hearing loud explosions caused by the regime’s military manoeuvres which had been conducted in the area between Jabal Abd al-Aziz on the M4 highway and al-Aliyah area in Tel Tamr countryside in northern al-Hasakah, near the frontlines with Turkish-backed factions.

 

These development coincided with the ongoing build-up on several frontlines in al-Hasakah and al-Raqqah countryside following the arrival of military reinforcement by Turkish forces and their proxy factions in “Peace Spring” areas and the recent reports of an imminent military operation, as well as the arrival of military reinforcement sent by regime forces and Syria Democratic Forces to the region.
