BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) found themselves under heavy assault in northeast Syria on Thursday when the Turkish-backed militants unleashed several attacks inside the Al-Hasakah Governorate.

The Turkish-backed militants began their assault on Thursday by storming the SDF’s positions at three towns south of Ras Al-‘Ayn.

Despite claims that the Turkish-backed militants captured the town of Al-Manajeer from the SDF, a source from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) denied this, adding that the Syrian Democratic Forces are still holding onto the town.

Meanwhile, at the Tal Tamir front in northwest Al-Hasakah, both the Syrian Army and SDF took on the Turkish-backed militants who were attempting to advance into this district from southeast Ras Al-‘Ayn.

According to a military source, the Syrian Army and SDF both repelled the Turkish-backed militants, while also killing at least a half dozen of these members of the so-called “Syrian National Army”.

The source said the Syrian Army has since sent reinforcements to the area to prevent any encroachment attempts by the Turkish-backed militants in the future.

In the coming days, the Syrian Army is expected to deploy tanks and heavy armor to these fronts; this should greatly improve their defenses.
