In a move seemingly aimed at expelling the Syrian Government from northeastern Syria, the People’s Protection Units (YPG) have made a string of advances inside Hasakah city during urban clashes with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) over the past few days.

Two government enclaves currently persist in Hasakah province, one in Hasakah city and one in its neighbouring city of Qamishli. If these are fully captured by the YPG and aligned factions, this will allow Kurdish parties to establish their very own ‘Rojava’ region, a name synonymous with Syrian Kurdistan.

The SAA and YPG are otherwise considered staunch opponents of ISIS – therefore, internal clashes between the sides will in theory serve to strengthen the Islamic State.

It does look like Kerry’s ‘option 2’ after the ceasefire collapsed where he was talking about partitioning Syria. This is bad for the Syrians.

That was option A; they just bought the needed time with talks of Plan B. They manipulate Russia any which way they please.

“Our partners from http://www.SouthFront.org have more on the story” but also another story: the responsability for rocket launch from Gaza was claimed by Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, and not Aknaf Beit al-Maqdes.
In addition to that: Aknaf Beit al-Maqdes is a Hamas spin-off in Syria (not even present in Gaza), the al-Qaeda affiliated group you are talking about in the video is probabily “Ansar Beit al-Maqdes” who are active in Sinai.

Basicly, the massive Da’ish offensive was due to the alliance of Qaeda in Iraq and former Saddam boys, in other terms : Iraqi Ba’ath party…
Syria is ruled by Syrian Ba’ath branch…
