Agricultural lands around Atshan village and Morek town as well as al-Jissat village were attacked by heavy machine guns while Tell al-Sakhr village was shelled by artillery and tanks on Oct.16 and 17.

Heavy machine guns hit also the agricultural lands surrounding al-Lataminah on 18, 19, 20 and 23 Oct. while they hit al-Arbaeen and Beit Jisr al-Ras villages on 18 and Tell al-Sakhr village on 19 as well as al-Hawash village on 21 and al-Sirmaniyah village on 22.
