Hasakah City, Syria (12:30 P.M.) – Last night, Hasakah City experienced a brief period of peace, absent of any firefights between the Kurdish police (Asayish) and government-backed “National Defense Forces” (NDF).

However, as dawn approached the city, the Asayish force stormed the NDF’s positions at the Guweiran District, resulting in a series of fierce clashes that spread across the provincial capital.

According to PYD activists, the Asayish are advancing in northeastern Guweiran after infiltrating the National Defense Forces’ front-lines this morning.

Meanwhile, in northern Hasakah, the National Defense Forces managed to advance north of the Al-Amal School, capturing some buildings in the Tal Hajjar District.

The NDF also claimed their units captured some building blocks in the Al-Zuhour District in southern Al-Hasakah.

The Syrian Air Force has played a major part in the defense of government-controlled Hasakah City, carrying out several airstrikes over the Asayish’s positions in the northern districts of the provincial capital.

Government and PYD officials are expected to meet today in Hasakah City today to negotiate another open-ended ceasefire.

Wonder if Hasakah has built up defenses for a long siege.

Put them into the ground already. You just lose time by talking to those treacherous american loving scumbags. Blitz them with the entire might of RuAF and SyAAF. Show them how their US friends will let em die once push comes to shove.
