Frequent flights | Russian helicopters fly over Al-Hasakah near Turkish border for second time in less than 48 hours

SOHR activists have reported that Russian helicopters have flown along the border strip with Turkey in the northern countryside of Al-Hasakah, from Al-Qamishli area through Amuda and Darbasiyah to Abu Rasin (Zarkan) on Sunday morning.

On May 27, SOHR activists reported that two Russian warplanes and six helicopters landed at Al-Qamishly Airport in Al-Hasakah countryside, coinciding with medial escalation of the Turkish military operation targeting SDF-held areas north of Syria.

Russian helicopters were flying at low altitude over Al-Hasakah countryside near “Peace Spring” areas, which is controlled by Turkish forces and their proxies, for the second time today.

According to reliable SOHR sources, six helicopters took off from Al-Qamishly Airport and headed towards Al-Dirbasiyah on borders with Turkey and towards Abo Rasen (Zarkan) countryside north-western of Al-Hasakah, to send reassurance messages to the residents and SDF.
