The recent violence between the Syrian Government backed “National Defense Forces” (NDF) and the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) has overshadowed their fierce battles with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), who seized the opportunity to attack both militias in western and eastern Al-Hasakah.

 

However, after a number of failed ceasefires over the course of 72 hours, both groups have seemingly worked out a deal that would require concessions from both parties in order to halt the violence plaguing the provincial capital of Al-Hasakah. This ceasefire agreement seems to be set in stone, despite reports from social media activists of violence in the Al-Aziziyyeh Quarter. The terms of agreement have not been released as of yet.

 

Sources close to Al-Masdar News have revealed that the YPG fighters in the Sheikh Maqsoud Quarter of Aleppo have begun the process of obstructing Islamic Front (Jabhat Al-Islamiyya) militants from utilizing this area as a supply route. If true, this would leave the militants from the Islamic Front without the luxury of this primary supply route to their entrenched fighters in east Aleppo.
