Earlier today, Kurdish and Syrian commanders met in the provincial of Hasakah to negotiate an indefinite ceasefire after sporadic clashes erupted in the city two days ago.

Much similar to the April 2016 Qamishli deal, both sides agreed to exchange prisoners and give back territorial gains made during the 48-hour clashes.

Effectively, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and National Defence Forces (NDF) will hand over the Literature College and two other newly seized sites to the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Asayish (Kurdish police).

However, a motorcycle did blow up in the Kurdish controlled Al-Salhiyah district about an hour ago, threatening to reignite clashes across the town.

4 people were killed and 15 injured by the motorcycle bomb; in all likelihood, ISIS sleeper cells are behind the attack although no party has claimed official responsibility yet.

The Islamic State remains a staunch enemy of the SAA and YPG; as such, infighting between the two stands to benefit ISIS significantly.

@leithfadel why do IS sleeper cells suddenly activate against YPG directly after clashes with the regime?

Nato won’t be here forever, i don’t think that 1.5 million kurds should continue acting like there is no tomorrow, turkey has started backing off in syria, they would’t be in a good position if in their defeat lays the intrest of turkey and the regime together.
