Al-Hasakah | Displaced people return to their homes northwest of Al-Hasakah amid ongoing flights by Russian aircraft and cautious calm

SOHR sources have reported that some residents, who recently have displaced over the propaganda of imminent Turkish operation, have returned to their houses in the countryside of Zarkan, Te Tamr, northwest of Al-Hasakah.

The displacement of most residents had followed the shelling of villages and towns in the northern and northwestern countryside of Al-Hasakah.

Now cautious calm prevails in the area and coincides with a daily flight by Russian warplanes over the area, reaching Manbij and Tel Rifaat in the northern and eastern countryside of Aleppo.

SOHR activists have reported seeing Russian helicopters flying over the border strip north of Al-Hasakah, reaching areas between areas controlled by SDF and regime on the one hand and areas controlled by Turkish forces and National Army faction in “Peace Spring” area on the other.

This flight by Russian helicopters comes amid the ongoing ceasefire for nearly eight days on Tel Tamr and Abu Rasin frontlines.

It is worth noting that Russian warplanes fly daily in the early hours of mornings on a daily basis over the areas for the 17th consecutive day.

On June 4, SOHR activists monitored the displacement of most residents of Abu Rasin (Zarkan) town, following the intensified shelling of wide areas of the town, where Turkish forces and their proxies fired artillery shells and rocket launchers on the area.

According to reliable SOHR sources, the residents of villages in Abu Rasin (Zarkan) town were displaced to safer areas, after vital facilities, schools and houses were directly targeted. However, few residents still hide in the area waiting to harvest their crops.

SOHR activists reported that almost 85% of the residents displaced from the area.
