Hours after the Kurdish police (Asayish) and the Arab tribesmen of the National Defense Forces (NDF) began to clash inside Qamishli, the Assyrian forces (Sootooro and Hamiya Al-Jazeerah) launched a counter-attack near the Security Box after several of their fighters were arrested by the Asayish.

Intense clashes are still ongoing between the pro-government forces and the Asayish in Qamishli; however, the battle is deadlocked, despite claims made by Kurdish activists regarding the alleged capture of the Qamishli Central Prison.

According to a military source in Qamishli, 5 NDF soliders have been killed and over 30 others, including Sootooro and Hamiya Al-Jazeerah, were reportedly wounded.

The NDF tribesmen that were killed by the Asayish are the following: Dhiab Mohammad Ibrahim, Ziad Mohammad, Ma’an Al-Saalam, Hadi Makhlif Al-Salameh, and Colonel Jalil (last name not provided).

Asayish casualties could not be verified.

First : deal with fanatic zealot filth. Once done, they would be able to talk between adults.
BTW, kurds are mostly armed by the US. Turkey is mostly armed by the US too and bombs the kurds… Basicly, there’s a practical non aggression between kurds and SAA… Some other problems may have occured at the local level… It just requires a stupid a*s to put on the fire when several militias are on the same area…

cAN’T YOU READ?? THE kURDS ARE THE IDIOTS WHO STARTED THE FIGHT. tHESE IDIOTS ARE probably listening to their US advisers. Stupid Kurds, if ASSad falls, the US will forget about them and leave them to the dogs, i.e. the Turks and their terrorist mercenaries. The USA and NATO seem to be fine that their ally, Turkey, is supporting ISIS, al-Qaeda and other terrorists. Russia was the one who was calling for the Kurds to be allowed into the negotiations. Some people do not know how to choose friends.

Kurds have always been treating the assyrians unjustly since the conflict. They occupy their lands and loot their homes/churches. Also the ypg and other kurdish forces in and around qamishli have attacked the assyrian forces there many times before for no reason. So don’t believe everything you see on the media glorifying the kurds. They aren’t as good as you think.

It seems like Kurdish scumbags can’t live peacefully with anybody (Turkey, Syria, Iraq). Kurds have done the same thing to Armenians. People who don’t want to give freedom to others do not deserve it themselves. They have no appreciation for peace and prosperity they enjoyed under the protection of Syrian state. Treachery is their second nature. They are part of the problem. They are oppressing Assyrians on religious pretext.

Kurds are attacking ethnic Assyrians and stealing land and other property instead of attacking the real problem, isis/isil.
