Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported that in the light of the killing of a member of Ahrar Al-Sharqiyyah who is also a member of Al-Akidat tribe by a leader of Al-Mawali tribe operating under the banner of Al-Hamzat faction in Ras Al-Ain last night, Al-AKaidat tribe have mobilized all its affiliated militiamen in Ras Al-Ain (Sere Kanye) and its countryside in Al-Hassakeh countryside.

Both Al-Qaraan and Al-Adwanah tribes have provided support to Al-Akidat by bringing militiamen and weapons.

All the fighters affiliated with Al-Akidat have waged a violent attack on gunmen from several factions present in Ras Al-Ain city in the early dawn hours of Wednesday.
