Al-Hasakah, Syria (11:45 A.M.) – The Kurdish police (Asayish), backed by the People’s Protection Units (YPG), launched a new assault inside the Guweiran District today, targeting the positions of the pro-government “National Defense Forces” (NDF) near the Al-Askari axis.

In response to this Asayish/YPG attack in eastern Hasakah City, the Syrian Arab Air Force launched their first airstrike of the day, hitting the Kurdish forces at the Askari District.

This imperative airstrike managed to help the National Defense Forces repel the Asayish/YPG assault on their positions in the Guweiran District, while also alleviating the pressure applied on their front-lines.

Sporadic clashes are still being reported at several axes in Hasakah City, as the Kurdish forces continue their offensive against the National Defense Forces.

not the best move at all, that will seriously just promote escalation of the war.

daily reminder : the armenian genocide was committed with the vital support of kurds. there is no black or white. they free arab towns only to use bulldozer on their houses.
for this attack they should be executed for betrayal or treated as foes in every circumstances from now on

Interesting fact that Hafez Al Assad the father Of Bashar Al Assad was also patronizing Jalal Talabani. the Kurdish Leader of PUK now the President of Iraq..when other nation reject them. Talabani had lived in Syria since the 1970s . Talabani stated that he would not forget the support given to him by Hafez Al Assad.for Iraqi Kurdistan struggle..

And on some other grounds, kurds were totally barred to speak their own language in Syria due to Hafez. He may have helped Talabani in Iraq to p**s of Saddam but did repression against syrian kurds…

Wow, typical western narrative. Cry about the Arabs “oppression” of Kurds but not the Turks oppression. Not to mention Hafez helped the PKK.

30 milion people without the ‘Promise’ Nation’…60 Year ago January 22, 1946, Qazi Muhammad announced the formation of the Kurdish Republic of Mahabad but Shah of Iran troops with political ,weapons supply from USA and Western Powers invade this Kurdish Republic …killing and displacing milions of Kurds …Even Qari Muhammad the President of the KURDiSH Republic of Mahabad was killed with the blessing of USA… Roosevelt later recounted that the order to have the Qazis killed was likely issued “as soon as our ambassador had closed the door behind him,” adding with regard to the Shah: “I never was one… Read more »

Why do arabs always seek westerners to blame for their infighting? If they wouldn’t do that and take responsibility for all that happens in middle east, there wouldn’t be a constant war. But it’s easier to shift the blame to America, Zionists, West in general, etc… instead of taking responsibility for their own actions.

I agree : kinglets in the Gulf have f*****g enough money to fund mercenaries, proxies and terrorists and they clearly have more than often double agendas. The Shah (which wasn’t an arab but a persian) was very rich too and needn’t anybody to slaughter all those who didn’t agree with him… Now consider Israel : first, there is NO palestinian people, they are in fact jordanians who where caught in West-Bank or Gaza when the region was partitioned (even PLO officials explained it!) and boosting this supposed artificial nationality was a way to do PR to go on fighting Israel… Read more »

The NDF there is mainly made up of Assyrian Christians protecting their interests and homes in the area… The Kurds speak of democracy but wish to forcefully remove them from the land. What the backstabbing Kurds are doing is no different than what the Israeli parasites, stealing the land of the Palestinian people are doing! It’s not ‘ok’ to steal parts of Syria for themselves when the Kurds have always been historically a nomadic people they ‘NEVER’ owned their own lands. The warmongering US using their puppets again to cause more mayhem, because it didn’t work out so great with… Read more »

I do not understand this conflict. Why are the Kurds attacking those who should be their allies?

Send them both to real fronts! NDF in Aleppo and Asaysh to Al-Bab. Let them fight there it would be much more useful…
