Amid Turkish ground shelling | Abu Raseen residents displace from Al-Hasakah

Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported that Turkish forces stationed in Bab Al-Khair and Da’oudiyah bases have fired heavy artillery shells on Abu Raseen (Zarkan) town north western of Al-Hasakah this evening, but no casualties have been reported. Meanwhile, some residents from the town displaced towards the countryside and the northern outskirts of the city.

On December 17, SOHR activists reported that Turkish forces fired heavy artillery shells on Um Al-Kaif village, hitting a power plant feeding Tel Tamr town and its countryside with electricity, which caused material damage to the power plant and a blackout in Tel Tamr in the north western countryside of Al-Hasakah.

It is worth noting that Turkish forces stationed in “Peace Spring” areas frequently shell Tel Tamr.

This was the second Turkish shelling in less than one week.

On December 13, SOHR sources reported that the Turkish forces fired heavy artillery shells on Tel Karabit, Um Al-Kaif and Tel Goma’a villages in the north western countryside of Tel Tamr, damaging the electricity network that feeds the electricity station in Tel Tamr.
