After 12 days of calm | Turkish forces shell village in Tel Tamr countryside

Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported that Turkish forces fired heavy artillery shells on positions in Al-Tawela village in Tel Tamr countryside western of Al-Hasakah. However, no casualties have been reported yet.

This comes after 12 days of calmness in these areas, since June 4.

On June 15, Syrian Observatory activists monitored the ongoing cautious calm on the frontlines in Tel Tamr, its countryside and Abu Rasin (Zarkan) and its countryside in north-western Al-Hasakah countryside. This cautious calm coincided with a daily overflight by Russian helicopters over the area.
