Turkish forces shelled an SDF position in Sarmasakh village in Al-Malkiya countryside north east Hasakah, causing material damages, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said.

Tuesday’s shelling comes in light of the alarming calm that has prevailed for weeks in SDF-held areas in northern and eastern Syria.

On February 27, SOHR said a female shepherd was injured in her foot with a gunshot fired by the Turkish forces and their proxy in the outskirts of Al-Dardarah village in Tel Tamer countryside north-west of the province.

Meanwhile, factions of “Al-Fath Al-Mubin” operation room fired heavy artillery shells on regime positions in Tela Abo Ali northern of Lattakia and the frontline of Joban village eastern of Idlib, leaving no casualties, the Observatory said.

In retaliation, regime forces fired heavy artillery shells on the vicinity of Maarat Alya eastern of Idlib, the vicinity of Al-Nairab town in eastern Idlib countryside, the vicinity of Ma’rat Al-Naasan town in north eastern Idlib countryside and the vicinity of Al-Ruwaiha town southern of Idlib. Also no casualties were reported.

On March 20, factions of “Al-Fath Al-Mubin” operations room fired heavy artillery shells on positions of regime forces on the 46th Regiment frontline in the western countryside of Aleppo in “Putin-Erdogan” area.
