Al-Hasakah Governorate (10:50 A.M.) – The U.S. Army reportedly withdrew their military advisors from the provincial capital of the Al-Hasakah Governorate last night amid growing security concerns, local sources told Al-Masdar News this morning.
The security concerns are due to the Syrian Air Force’s ongoing bombardment of the Kurdish police’s (Asayish) headquarters in Hasakah City.
On Friday, the U.S. military advisors had a close call when a bomb from the Syrian Air Force landed near their positions outside of Hasakah City.
While the Syrian Air Force was not targeting the U.S. advisors on Friday, the latter’s presence near Hasakah City puts them in the middle of war-zone.
The Asayish and government-backed “National Defense Forces” (NDF) are still clashing at several axes in Hasakah City, despite the large presence of civilians caught in the middle of their battle.
No ceasefire agreement has been put in place to end the violence.
