The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is now in control of all checkpoints inside the city of Al-Qamishli after a meeting was conducted by officials from the Syrian government and People’s Protection Units (YPG) on Thursday evening.

Unlike previous agreements that included the pro-government “National Defense Forces” (NDF); this meeting that took place yesterday excluded the latter from all military posts inside the city.

The decision was made by the Syrian government after Kurdish officials accused NDF fighters of causing issues inside of Al-Qamishli.

As a result of this latest agreement, the National Defense Forces will be redeployed to the Syrian government controlled villages around the Al-Qamishli District.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
