Two children martyred, others injured in al-Hasakah terrorists clashes
Local sources say the clashes came as a result of a dispute between the militants over human smuggling operations to Turkish territory.
Two children were martyred, and a number of civilians were injured, as a result of the renewed infighting between terrorist groups supported by the Turkish occupation forces in the Ras Al-Ain area in the northwestern countryside of al-Hasakah.
Local sources from Ras Al-Ain told state-run Syrian news agency SANA that violent clashes erupted since the early morning hours near the crossing of the city of Ras Al-Ain on the border with Turkey, between terrorist elements forming the so-called Civil Police and terrorists affiliated with the Sultan Murad Division terrorist organization.
The sources pointed out that the militants used automatic and medium weapons during the clashes, which have so far led to the martyrdom of two children, the wounding of five civilians, and material damage to homes and property.
The sources added that at least one militant was killed in the clashes, while several others were injured, adding that the armed clashes came as a result of a dispute between the militants over human smuggling operations to Turkish territory.
It is noteworthy that Turkey-backed armed factions took control of the cities of Ras Al-Ain and Tal Abyad as part of the so-called "Peace Spring" campaign launched by the Turkish army against the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in October 2019.
