Fierce clashes erupted today between Syrian Army personnel and Asayish forces inside the northeastern city of Al-Hasakah.

According to local activists, the clashes broke out when the Kurdish militiamen hit – with an RPG – a checkpoint for the paramilitary National Defense Forces (NDF), injuring some members.

The firefights then extended to neighboring districts where light and medium-caliber weapons were used extensively by both warring parties.

The activists also reported that many civilians have been killed and injured when the Kurdish fighters shelled government0controlled areas with mortars.

Stop listening to Hamas and Da’ish propaganda! The “Protocol of the Elders of Zion” is a TOTAL forgery, there are even lotsa plagiarism in, taken from “Dialogue in h**l” by Maurice Jolly except that this book targeted Napoleon III instead of the jews! And funny thing : make an anonymous opinion poll in the mid-east about in which country of the region people would like to live… It was made. 78% answered… Israel! Israel is just a problem for all the s**t dictatures and s**t monarchies in the mid-east as they are the only democracy so they spend biiiiiiig money… Read more »

I bet it was Asayish (Kurdistan police) that clashed… And BTW, NDF is not syrian army but a pro-Assad militia… It’s not the 1st time there are clashes between the two factions.

Do not worry because it is only a matter of time before Turkey allied with Syria to disarm and submit for a good time these troublesome Kurds

Pkk and ypg are cia backed, along with “moderate” killers. When it’s just assad and kurdish left the kurdish will do whatever there cia handlers want. Without the kurds usa could not have a presence in Syria.

This is not the syrian army. Bashar has an agreement with the kurds, not Asayish but rather YPG that they will not clash with each other. That is why Russia and Syria is not bombing them with air planes. This group clashing with Kurds is Pro-Assad but not on the agreement which is why one can´t blame Assad for this. Get ur facts right!

Clearly.
Are there still non-corrupt politicians anywhere? And aren’t the non-corrupt ones even worse than the others?

you yealots get the moeny from abroad, from Saudies and Amerikan zionists. You get zealots from Central Asia and morons from Europe (I do not miss them, if they are killed in Syria, I cheer to it).
So think twice, before you write a nazi jewish propaganda here.
