Turkish shelling wounds government soldiers in North of Syria’s Hasakah

Six soldiers of Syrian government forces were wounded due to Turkish missile attack on the village of Umm al-Keif in west of the town of Tel Tamr, northeast Syria.

An exclusive source told North Press that the wounded soldiers were transferred to Martyr Legarin Hospital in Tel Tamr for treatment.

On Saturday morning, Turkish artillery targeted the village of Umm al-Keif, causing power cut off as a result of damaging power lines north of the town.

Since early 2022, the Turkish forces have intensified their attacks against villages of Tel Tamr. The attacks coincide with Turkey’s announcement about launching a military operation against Syrian north.

The Autonomous Administration was first formed in 2014 in the Kurdish-majority regions of Afrin, Kobani and Jazira in northern Syria following the withdrawal of the government forces. Later, it was expanded to Manbij, Tabqa, Raqqa, Hasakah and Deir ez-Zor after the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) defeated ISIS militarily.

For two weeks, Russian forces have intensified their patrols along the frontlines between the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) areas and those of the Turkish forces and their affiliated Syrian opposition factions.
