Hasakah City, Syria (1:00 P.M.) Kurdish police (Asayish) reportedly opened fire on a Ba’ath Battalions post near the Central Market of Hasakah City on Monday, killing one fighter and wounding two others.

A local source told Al-Masdar News that the Kurdish police opened fire on the Ba’ath Battalions after a dispute near the crowded Central Market of Hasakah City – no bystanders were injured.

This is the second time in two months that the Kurdish police and Syrian government forces have confronted one another inside Hasakah City.

Previously, the Kurdish Police and National Defense Forces (NDF) were involved in a violent confrontation in the predominately Arab “Al-Salihiyah District”; it was later put to rest after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and People’s Protection Units (YPG) intervened to end the hostilities.

Kurds pushing their luck

The independent Kurdistan is only matter of time. Both Israel and the US want to carve it out from Iraq, Syria and Turkey. Probably territories which are now under Kurdish control will never come back to Syrian government. Erdogan who has been supporting instability in Syria ultimately will be responsible not only for the disintegration of Syria but also for partition of Turkey. He seems to be a very poor strategist.

Even though YPG is finessing government on a daily basis, Assad will never execute any preemptive actions against the YPG militants in Hasakah.

Stop acting like such cucks. This is not the first time they attack government troops, but they somehow always get away with it. Deal with them sooner rather than later.

YOU should be treated like ISIS. This is Rojava, not Syria anymore. Ba’athists did s**t, if you do s**t in any area, you’re confronted to the police. This was police activity, not military activity. BTW, even Assad would like to get rid of the Ba’ath party : it’s them that blocked all the democratic reforms he wanted to promote. Remember that syrian Ba’ath party is the syrian branch of Saddam’s party and a lot of ISIS leaders are not from al-Qaeda but former iraqi Ba’ath party guys. Even if Assad is from this party (due to daddy), he hasn’t a… Read more »

If You read kurdish versions they are totally different from most of Yours. Then they are all liars – or what. You could take Aranews.

Kurds there are not afraid of the Russian, Lebanese Regime i Damascus and could have killed all in Hasaka area Years ago.

Is Daaesh really a threat to them? If it is, they should stop it unless they want Daaesh to take advantage of this.

Kurds can’t be trusted – it is all about carving land out for themselves. Yes, some fight ISIS, but many were welcoming the terrorists and fighting alongside them against Syria at first. They’ve also killed Assyrians and other minorities.

Hi JOJO. Dont think Kurds have carved any land. ISIS/Daesh took it out of reach for Assad and Assad hasnt treated a big part of the kurds well at all. Syria is – to mee – an artificial construction made from the defeated Osmans by French and Brittish for oil and for GB also a european settling which instead of a briitish protectorat became Israel because of WW2. To med the eastern parts og syria today should be their own sunni- state. The kurds are majority or close to if You go east of Manbij and the borderline shouldt divide… Read more »
