Syria Army Enters Key Area in HasakaThe Syrian forces on Tuesday entered the village of al-Kozaleya west of Tal Tamr in Hasaka, SANA reported.

The report added that the army would continue its deployment to Hasaka near Hasaka-Aleppo international highway.

Tal Tamr is 35 kilometers southeast of Ra’s al-Ayn which is currently under the control of Turkish troops. It is on a strategically important highway, the M4, which runs east to west. Turkish forces seized the highway on Sunday.

Turkish military forces and militants of the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA), who enjoy Ankara’s patronage, launched a long-threatened cross-border invasion of northeast Syria on October 9, in a declared attempt to eliminate Kurdish militants from the People’s Protection Units (YPG) to push them away from border areas.

Ankara views the US-backed YPG as a terrorist organization tied to the homegrown Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which has been involved in armed separatism in Turkey since 1984.
