Syrian Arab Army made advances west of the town of Tal Tamr in the countryside of Hasakah Governorate on Tuesday.

According to reports by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the SAA is currently present in the villages of Salmasa, Um al-khair and Gharnata west of Tal Tamr in the countryside of Hasakah Governorate.
