Turkish forces renew shelling of village in Syria’s Hasakah

TEL TAMR, Syria (North Press) – Turkish Forces targeted on Thursday a village in the northern countryside of Hasakah, northeastern Syria, after the area witnessed fierce shelling last night.

A source in Tel Tamr Military Council told North Press that the Turkish forces shelled the village of al-Gozaliya, west of the town of Tel Tamr, with a barrage of artillery shells.

On Wednesday, the villages of al-Gozaliya, Tel al-Laban and Umm al-Khair, west of the town, witnessed fierce artillery shelling.

In addition, the town of Zirgan (Abu Rasin) and the villages of Dada Abdal, al-Asadiya, Tel al-Ward, Harmala and Rabi’at have been intensively targeted by Turkish artillery.

Since November 20, the Turkish forces launched a wide spread air operation against northern Syria that lasted for three consecutive days, targeting all vital facilities and infrastructure along the whole border line in blatant violation of ceasefire agreements of 2019.

Following the Turkish incursion in October 2019, Turkey signed two ceasefire agreements, one with Russia and the other with the US stipulating ceasing all hostilities and the withdrawal of the SDF 32 km away from the Turkish border.

The SDF did withdrew from the border areas according to the agreement, but Turkey continues targeting the area.
