BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) sent a large number of reinforcements to the northeastern region of Syria on Sunday amid reports about a new Turkish attack in this part of the country.

According to a military source in the Al-Hasakah Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army sent several reinforcements to the Tal Tamr, Kobane, ‘Ayn ‘Issa, and Al-Tabaqa fronts in order to fortify their positions and prevent any future advances by the Turkish Armed Forces and their militant allies.

The source added that the Syrian Arab Army made the decision to send reinforcements to these fronts following an attack by the Turkish-backed militants on the town of Al-Ahras near the Tal Tamr District.

The Syrian Army was able to repel the militant attack on Al-Ahras; however, the military fears these Turkish-backed forces may try to attack other areas in a bid to land grab in northern Syria.

On Sunday, the Turkish-backed militants scored a major victory in northeastern Syria when the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) withdrew from the key border city of Ras Al-‘Ayn.

With Ras Al-‘Ayn under their control, the Turkish-backed militants will either halt their Al-Hasakah operation or launch a new attack in another governorate in northern Syria.
