Late on Tuesday, armed clatters emerged in northeastern Syria between forces of the Assad regime and members of the YPG/PKK terror group.
The bouts broke out in the Qamishli district of Al-Hasakah province after Assad forces fired on members of the terrorist organization, according to local sources.
As the clashes deepened, YPG/PKK terrorists endeavored to enter the military zone of the Assad regime in the district center known as Security Square. Regime forces based at Qamishli Airport hit the terror group’s positions in the city with artillery fire.
Fatalities from both sides were reported. The heavy clashes came to end with the arbitration of Russia, but the escalation between the parties resumes in Qamishli district.
The terror group and regime conjointly govern Al-Hasakah province.
Syria has been locked in a malicious civil war since early 2011, when the Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity, which later developed into bloody clashes and interventions from external forces, including the Lebanese Hezbollah group and Iranian militias. Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and more than 10 million others were displaced, according to UN figures.
