Turkish Forces, Terrorists Target Several Villages in Syria’s Hasakah: SANA

Turkish forces and Takfiri militants targeted several villages in Syria’s northeastern province of Hasakah, using mortar rounds, a report said.

“Turkish forces and their mercenaries from terrorist organizations on Tuesday morning shelled a number of villages in the towns of Tal Tamr and Abu Rasin,” SANA reported.

Turkish military forces later joined the militants in attacking the rural areas along the common border by firing artillery shells from inside Turkish territory, the report added.

On Saturday, Turkish forces also caused damage on a power station in Hasakah by shelling the electricity lines in Tal Tamr.

This came a few days after the Turkish forces cut off the water supply to local residents in the city of Hasakah and surrounding residential neighborhoods for at least two consecutive days.

According to SANA, Turkish army troops and their militant allies have been attacking villages in Hasakah, Raqqah, and Aleppo with artillery shells and various other heavy weapons since their cross-border offensive into Syrian territory in October and the subsequent occupation of a long swath of the border with the Arab country.
