Turkey renews bombing Syria’s Hasakah countryside within 24 hours

TEL TAMR, Syria (North Press) – On Tuesday, for the second time within the last 24 hours, Turkish forces and affiliated armed opposition factions re-bombed the countryside of the town of Tel Tamr, north of Hasakah, northeast Syria.

The countryside of Tel Tamr town was re-bombed with heavy artillery at about 14:20 in the afternoon, a source of the Tel Tamr Military Council told North Press.

The bombing intensively targeted the villages of al-Dardara and Tel Shnan in the north and west of the town, according to the source.

The village of al-Dardara has been heavily shelled over the two last days by Turkish forces, following a calm week along the lines of contact. 

Since the beginning of October, the villages situated on the contact lines in Tel Tamr were exposed to intensive shelling by Turkish forces and its backed Syrian armed opposition factions destroying civilians’ houses and damaging vital buildings, educational facilities and cemeteries belonging to the Assyrian community.

Most of the villages located on the contact lines with the Turkish forces in the countryside of the towns of Tel Tamr in the countryside of Hasakah, have become empty of residents due to the continuous bombardment.
