In video: Locals pelt Turkish forces with stones, shoes in Syria’s Hasakah
Dozens of people in Syria’s Northeastern Province of Hasakah have vented their anger by throwing stones at Turkish military forces for their presence in the area following a cross-border incursion by Turkish army troops and their allied militants against militants from the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG).
Syria’s official news agency SANA reported that residents of the village of Dayr al-Ghosn pelted the armored military vehicles of Turkish troops with stones and shoes on Friday.
The report added that Turkish forces, in return, fired tear gas to quell the protest and disperse the crowd.
Separately, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that a young man had lost his life after a Turkish military vehicle ran him over in the village of Sarmsakh near the border with Turkey.
