According to activists quoted by the al-Watan newspaper, the town of Abu Rasin and other towns in the Tel Temer area in the north of the northeastern province of Hasakeh near the border with Turkey remain targets of intense artillery strikes, both standard, and reactive, from the Turks and their mercenaries.

Two children and four women are among the fatal victims, while more than 1,500 families abandoned their homes and eight villages were left by their residents.

The local authorities stated that they continue to provide humanitarian aid and food assistance to displaced families housed in reception centers or in civilian houses in towns near the target areas.

The attacks have caused colossal material losses and are frequent against communities surrounding the areas under the control of the Turkish military and are perpetrated under the pretext of destroying targets of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a militia of Kurdish majority allied to the United States and classified as terrorist by Ankara.

The Turkish military and illegal armed groups control large areas in the provinces of Idlib, Aleppo, Raqa and Hasakeh in northern Syria since 2018.

Damascus has denounced their presence on several occasions and described it as an occupation, and assured that the continuous attacks by Turkey seek a demographic change via the displacement of civilians.
