Fierce clashes with machine guns and grenades erupted today at the northeastern city of Al-Qamishli between the paramilitary National Defense Forces (NDF) and People’s Protection Unit (YPG).

The firefights broke out after the Kurdish militia kidnapped, yesterday, members of the NDF and police force in the town. The reasons of the abduction have not been revealed yet.

A footage has been released by local activists documenting the clashes inside Al-Qamishli.
Months ago, skirmishes between the two parties were also reported, claiming casualties from both sides.

When the Kurds kidnap the NDF fighters, what do you expect to happen?

Doesn’t anyone realize what’s going on? In Syria the US is backing the “Kurds” as a means to try to Balkanize Syria.

THis is exactly why Da’esh still exists, because the opponents, Kurds, Govern’t and REbels can’t figure out. THE ENEMY OF MY ENEMY IS MY FRIEND.

Finish Da’esh then do a transition, I think this is what most rational people think. But at least dont waste your resources on each other.

I second your opinion. I always said that Kurds can not be trusted. They are only about themselves besides serving their Zionist masters. They took sides with donmeh jews with Armenian genocide and still continue the same policy.

Have the Kurds lost it? Is ISIS not a big enough threat for them?

The Kurds should side with Russia and Assad. They know very well that Turkey is supporting ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and other islamist groups, they know Turkey is their worst enemy and they know that Turkey is an ally of USA and NATO. If Assad is defeated, the US will forget the Kurds and leave them at the mercy of Turkey and its terrorist mercenaries.
