Sputnik news agency reported confrontations between the auxiliary forces of the Syrian army and American forces south of Qamishli.

The Russian agency said that the confrontations in Qamishli erupted after the American forces carried out an airdrop operation on a village controlled by the Syrian army.

Sources told Al Mayadeen that Rakan Abu Hayel from the village of Tuwaimin in the eastern countryside of Qamishli was killed during confrontations with US occupation forces following the airdrop operation.
