Two militants were killed and four were injured in an explosion in northeastern Syria, a Rossa Primavera News Agency’s source in Syria reports on August 14.
According to the source, the explosion took place on a farm between the villages of Ad-Dawudi and Al-Arishah in Hasakah province. Presumably, a land mine was detonated.
The explosion killed two militants of the Sultan Murad militant group (an organization banned Russia). Four more militants were injured.
On October 9, 2019, Turkey launched the Operation Peace Spring against the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the northern Syria east of the Euphrates River. Ankara announced the following objectives of the operation: to dislodge the Kurds from the 30-40 km of gray area along the entire Syrian-Turkish border east of the Euphrates and then to move into this area Syrian refugees, who fled from the hostilities to the Turkish territory.
Turkey used Ankara-backed Syrian opposition groups as strike groups. The Turkish military supported them with artillery and aviation. The same groups remained in the territories occupied during the operation.
On October 22, 2019 in Sochi, during negotiations between Russia and turkey, a truce agreement was reached. But Turkish-backed militants regularly violated it and opened fire on the Kurds positions in the provinces of Raqqa and Hasakah. The SDF often open return fire. Therefore, the situation in the area, where the Operation Peace Spring is conducted, cannot be called peaceful.
