Hasakah City, Syria (2:20 A.M.) – Clashes erupted in Hasakah City tonight after the ceasefire negotiations between the Syrian government and PYD (Kurdish political party) failed to bring an end to the violence.

According to a military source in Hasakah City, the PYD and YPG demanded that the government-backed “National Defense Forces” (NDF) completely withdraw from the provincial capital, leaving the entire city under Asayish control.

The government rejected this demand and countered with a proposal to disarm some NDF groups as long as the YPG and PYD disarm the Kurdish police inside of Hasakah City.

As soon as the meeting concluded, intense clashes broke-out in the Al-Nashwa and Guweiran districts, resulting in non-stop shelling and gunfire that is still ongoing at the moment.

    • Stupidity og government? Sorry and what should they do? Retreat from the city and take all non-Kurds with them?
      Kurds are using situation when Gov is fighting Nusra to beckstab them. It is obvious that in this moment they can easily make ethnic cleansing of all Hasaka province. And Kurds are doing that, government cant do nothing much about it. They can try to protect non-Kurdish population from Kurdish gang – but that is it…
      Of course that US is behind and Kurds are very willing to clean Rojava…

    • It is very simple. while SAA is fighting Nusra, Kurds are using the moment to clean entire province from non-Kurds so they will have great start in the future partition of once multinational and multi confessional state.
      Actually you can see the future of our EU states, for some 2 or 3 decades – here in Syria. We support partition and we are saying it is the only solution, but Im afraid that very similar future awaits France, Germany, Italy, UK…

    • It was already decided 1 century ago to create Kurdistan but Ataturk didn’t wanted and “convinced” the SDN (UN post WW1 attempt) to not. Ths was an error. You know, all the nations around were created by Sikes and Picot using a ruler over a map without taking any care of history and ethnicity when dislocating the crappy Ottoman Empire.

    • No surprise : they were banned to speak ther own language by syrian state for 52 years! Opression in Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran! In the former, the Shah opressed ’em, they helped a LOT the revolution, when Khomeini overthrew the revolution, he opressed the kurds too. Giscard and Ponia should really have followed theirs instinct and not listened to the Shah : they considered to make a “Bigeard shrimp” of Khomeini.

      • Kurds have killed millions of indegenious people in the past 100 years. Kurds are gypsies from north iran. It is a good thing, they must be pushed back for the sake of humanity in that region. They are literally just like daash.

  1. Perhaps the US told the Kurds that it has their back, so they should attack the SAA. An old trick by the US to create chaos in parts of the world they don’t like. Unfortunately, a lot of people are going to die now.

  2. i can see that kurdish troll are very active on this one.you defended this town along with SAA and NDF and you we’re allright when you needed them around.now you got americans pulling your strings.you think americans care about you little kurds? wait and see.you better accept that peace treaty from the govrement and you will still have friend by your side.north from you is turkey on the other side it’s ISIS and don’t know where you looking at,you stupid,……

    • The SAA has no purpose being in Hasaka and Qamishli, they couldn’t defend them against ISIS, only with the Kurds strength could ISIS be repelled, they can barely defend Deir Ezzor! They should pull out and focus those troops at points that they have a chance of holding on to, like Aleppo or Damascus.
