Al-Hasakah, Syria (3:00 A.M.) Intense clashes broke-out in the provincial capital of the Al-Hasakah Governorate tonight after Kurdish police (Asayish) attacked the National Defense Forces’ (NDF) positions near the city-center.

No reason was given for the surprise Asayish attack on the NDF; however, the former decided to arrest a large number of pro-government fighters and civilians after storming their positions.

Following these arrests by the Asayish, another series of clashes broke-out on Marsho Street between the latter and the NDF/Hajaneh, resulting in a violent exchange with small arms and RPG rounds.

In response to the counter-attack by the NDF/Hajaneh at Marsho Street, the Asayish started to indiscriminately target residential areas; this prompted the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to intervene by shelling the Kurdish police from the Kawakeb Base.

As of now, the SAA and People’s Protection Units (YPG) have been deployed to the city in order to cease the violence; however, clashes still persist near the city-center.

The Syrian Arab Army has issued another warning to the Asayish about shelling residential neighborhoods; if they continue to do so, they will send their tanks into Hasakah City.

And it’s their right to want it! Anyway, most of the countries in the area have been created with a ruler on a map without taking ANY care of ethnicities…
High time to settle things right.

The Kurds have never had territory. Historically they were nomads moving from place to place according to the season.

PKK and Co ain’t commies! Commies are right wingers for ’em! Bookchin who influenced a lot Öçalan is more considered as an anarchist, please, stop insulting them, commies have killed more anars than the fascists 🙂 And they don’t help ISIS, they KILL ISIS, they’re even the best at it : nothing better than far-left to fight the nazis/fascists : they deeply HATE capitalism and fascism is the worst form of capitalism. Nazism is capitalism+racism, nazislamism AKA jihadism is nazism+islam… They don’t serve anyone, they’ve got their own agenda and let’s hope it contaminates all the middle-east so they’ll terminate… Read more »

This is not what the Syrian Army needs, this should be resolved pronto. The kurds and SAA cannot be fighting, that’s just what the rinos in Washington want.

Following the ceasefire, anyone bearing arms against the legitimate Syrian government fprces is a terrorist organisation.

These Kurds must be Barzani Kurds. Once ISIS is gone, they will be dealt with.

No I don’t blame the YPG at all for this, it’s the local Asayish that have no respect for boundaries. YPG has tried to calm

Send NDF out of Rojava and the remaining SAA troops around would be much more useful fighting Da’ish or Qaedans+affiliates around Aleppo or Palmyra

NDF ain’t government forces but a pro government militia… It’s not the 1st time it happens and it seems that NDF has problems to understand there’s a police force here and they have to respect the rules : they’re not in Syria, they’re in Rojava…

You can’t trust a Kurd. They’re all thieves and backstabbers. Grabbing Syrian land to call their own..Just like the f*****g israelis stealing Palestinian land.
They have no rights to carve out a piece of Syria for themselves. What about the rights of the Syrian people to their land!!!

Take your shitty lies some where else. We’ve seen your traitorous actions the past years. We should stop arming you in Aleppo, let the Americans and Israelis help you like in northern Syria

I got a better idea : replace kurds in Aleppo by Al-Hasakah SAA+NDF and vice-versa : Rojava doesn’t need occupation troops… Never heard of israelis helping the kurds but the RUSSIANS DO! Frenchs and germans too… F.Hollande even said that as soon Kurdistan declares its independance, France’s gonna be the FIRST country to recognize them! I wouldn’t be surprised if the chineses were helping them too and as the brits are nothing else than an US poodle, this simply means that all the UN security council helps the creation of a new country. Erdogan, Assad, Salman, Rohani and all those… Read more »

Russia has publicly said that Syrian territorial integrity is sacrosanct and the fate of the country is up to the Syrian people as a whole.

Unlike other countries, Russia does what iot says.
