BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed militants launched a surprise attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) defenses near the Syrian-Turkish border today in a bid to advance to the Tal Tamr District of Al-Hasakah.

Led by the so-called “Syrian National Army”, the Turkish-backed militants attempted to crack the Syrian Army’s lines at northwestern Tal Tamr, despite the fact they are supposed to be adhering to a ceasefire in this border region.

However, the Turkish-backed militants would eventually fall short of their plan to capture the town of Ahras, as the Syrian Arab Army was able to swiftly repel the attempted advance by these forces loyal to Ankara.

A source from the Syrian Arab Army told Al-Masdar News that the military will likely beef up their defenses around Tal Tamr in order to prevent a similar attack in the future.

Lastly, he added that if the militants attack again, the Syrian Army will likely have no choice but to get involved in the Ras Al-‘Ayn battle and drive back these Turkish-backed forces.

Looks like SAA is going to open a new front/s.

Por qué muy pasivo el ejercito Sirio?, la respuesta debe ser con intervención de la fuerza área Siria para enfrentar al envalentonado Erdogan (Hermandad Musulmana).
