Military escalation | Turkish forces shell vital institutions in Abu Rasin town in Al-Hasakah

Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported that Turkish forces have fired heavy artillery shells on an Al-Asayesh building in the centre of Abu Rasin (Zarkan) district northwestern of Al-Hasakah, damaging the building. Meanwhile the communication services are cut off the area.

This coincides with extensive ground shelling, and displacement of residents towards safer areas following the Turkish military escalation and damages to public institutions.

Turkish forces have fired heavy artillery shells on a cellular communications tower in Abo Rasen town (Zarkan), cutting communication services off the residents.

SOHR activists reported that Turkish forces shelled the centre of Abo Rasen town, Al-Boby and Dada Abdal villages.

Moreover, Turkish forces shelled Al-Tawela and Tel Tawil villages in Tel Tamr countryside north western of Al-Hasakah.

Earlier today, reliable SOHR sources reported intensive rocket and artillery fire by Turkish forces and factions of the “National Army” on the Assyrian village of Tel Taweel and Al-Tawilah and Sukkar Al-Ohaymar villages in the western countryside of Tel Tamr in north-western Al-Hasakah. However, no further details were reported yet about the number of casualties and material damage caused by the recent bombardment.

This coincided with a propaganda by Turkish media outlets about imminent incursion into SDF-held areas in north Syria region by Turkish forces and their proxy factions.
