On Thursday evening, the Arab tribes from the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Assyrian “Gozarto Protection Forces” (GPF) captured several sites in Qamishli after a flurry of violent clashes with the Asayish (Kurdish police) units near the military airport.

According to a military source in Qamishli, the NDF and GPF captured the Abu Raghab and Kurayrish checkpoints from the Asayish after launching a counter-assault on Thursday evening.

Following the capture of the aforementioned checkpoints, the NDF and GPF regained control over the Al-Salaam Hospital and the Municipal Stadium, which reversed the Asayish’s gains inside the city.

With the recent escalation in violence, a number of civic leaders have called for both parties to cease the violence that has cost the lives of several civilians.

Representatives from the Syrian government and the PYD regime are meeting this morning in order to negotiate a final ceasefire inside of Qamishli – no further details were given.
