BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed militants continued their attacks against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) this week, as their fighters stormed two towns under the control of the latter in the Al-Hasakah Governorate.

Led by the so-called “Syrian National Army”, the Turkish-backed militants attacked the SDF’s troops at the towns of Al-Mataleh and Hamid on Saturday in a bid to expand their presence near the border city of Ras Al-‘Ayn in the northwestern countryside of Al-Hasakah.

According to pro-opposition activists, the Turkish-backed militants managed to capture these two towns following a short battle with the Syrian Democratic Forces on Saturday afternoon.

The total number of casualties from either side is unknown.

Parece que la religión de Erdogan no sabe el respeto a su palabra, siempre mentira y conspira, Rusia decepciona al hacer actuar a su socio Erdogan, valiente ejercito Sirio tendrá que enfrentar en diferentes frentes por la redistribución de sus hombres, SDF ya debe formar parte del ejercito Sirio, sólo es la única forma de enfrentar al jefe de los terroristas del medio oriente que es Erdogan.
