Tell el Fakhariya

Tell el Fakhariya

Tell Fekheriye is an ancient site in the Khabur River basin in the Al Hasakah Governorate of northern Syria. It is securely identified as the site of Sikkan, a part of the Aramaean kingdom of Bit Bahiani in the early 1st millennium BC. In the early 20th century Tell Fekheriye was suggested as the site of Washukanni, the capital of Mitanni, but the claim is unconfirmed.
