Amid participation of helicopters | SDF and Coalition conduct military drills in Qasrak base

Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported successive explosions in Al-Hasakah countryside, which were caused by live-fire exercises conducted by Syrian Democratic Forces and International Coalition Forces in Qasrak base in Al-Hasakah countryside with the participation of helicopters.


This comes as a part of ongoing efforts to raise combat readiness of soldiers in order to cope with expected attacks.


On June 12, SOHR sources reported that International Coalition forces conducted military exercises with live ammunition and heavy artillery, at their base in Al-Omar oil field in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, amid firing heavy artillery shells at fake targets, to raise the combat readiness of the soldiers and in preparation for possible attacks by the Iranian militias. This coincided with the flight of drones over the area.
