A US military patrol was spotted in the Syrian province of Al-Hasakah, a Rossa Primavera News Agency source in Syria reports on February 9.
The source reported that the patrol was moving across the Tel Tamar area in six cars. The Al-Hasakah province is located in the northeast of the country and borders Turkey and Iraq. It is the farthest region from Damascus.
Turkish troops shelled the village of Umm al-Keif in the same area, the agency’s interlocutor said. The Turkish military fired mortars and some heavier artillery.
The source added that Turkey is building a new observation point in Syria. It is being built in the village of Tel Kminas in the eastern Idlib.
According to the Turkish Anadolu agency, US activity in Hasakah is related to the confrontation with Russia. According to Turkish journalists, the US want to prevent “Russian troops” from accessing oil fields in the north-east of Syria.
