Syrian Army, SDF Foil Turkish-Backed Attack in Northeast Syria

A group of Turkish-backed militants attempted to infiltrate the defenses of the Syrian Arab Army and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Tel Tamr countryside on Saturday, resulting in heavy clashes between the warring parties.

According to reports from Hassakeh, the Turkish-backed militants attacked the defenses of the SDF and Syrian army near the town of Dardara; however, they were unsuccessful in infiltrating their positions. 

At the same time, the Turkish-backed militants continued their attacks against the SDF and the Syrian army’s defenses in northern Syria, striking a number of sites in the Manbij, Ayn Issa, and Tel Tamr areas.

These attacks by the Turkish-backed militants have become more prevalent over the past few weeks, as they respond to the Syrian army’s offensives Idleb and Aleppo by launching their own operations in northeast Syria.
