Turkey targets village in Syria’s Tel Tamr

 TEL TAMR, Syria (North Press) – Turkish forces targeted on Wednesday the village of Qubur al-Qarajnah, north of the town of Tel Tamr, north of Hasakah Governorate, northeast Syria. 

A military source told North Press that the Turkish forces and Turkish-backed armed opposition factions, aka Syrian National Army (SNA), targeted the aforementioned village with heavy weapons.

No casualties or material damage were reported.

In the past two days, the Turkish forces attacked the village using artillery and heavy weapons, according to the source.

Tel Tamr, which has a population of about 25,000 and is 30 km away from the Syrian-Turkish border, is of strategic importance as it is a junction on the M4 Highway linking the Jazira region in northeast Syria to Aleppo governorate in northwest.

The town has been under constant attack by Turkish forces and their SNA factions for more than two years.

Parts of the northern and western countryside of the town and the entire southern countryside are protected by the Syriac Military Council and the Assyrian Khabour Guards Forces, while the SNA controls the northern countryside up to the city of Sere Kaniye (Ras al-Ain) on the northern border of Syria.
