Clashes between the pro-government Syrian National Defense Forces (NDF) and Asayish, the security wing of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are still ongoing in the city of al-Qamishli in northeastern Syria.

The clashes came to a temporary halt on April 22 morning. A delegation of the Russian Military Police and the Syrian Arab Army met with representatives of Asayish in the Tayy district, where the clashes first broke out.

The two sides reportedly agreed on a ceasefire to de-escalate tensions in al-Qamishli. However, clashes between the NDF and Asayish returned in the noon. Each side accused the other of violating the Russian-brokered ceasefire.

Both the NDF and Asayish used heavy weapons in the clashes. A child, Mahmood Mahmood, 14, died after sustaining wounds from the clashes. Other civilians were reportedly injured.

The heavy clashes spread to the district of al- Bsheiriyeh, where members of the Syrian Military Intelligence Directorate opened fire at a temporary checkpoint of Asayish.

A personal dispute that saw NDF fighters killing an Asayish officer caused the clashes. According to several sources, both sides sustained human losses. The total number of casualties is yet to be revealed.

The SDF is now accusing Damascus and Russian forces of backing what it called “provocations” by the NDF. The US-backed group appears to be taking advantage of the incident to limit the influence of government forces in al-Qamishli city.

    Quite representative of Putin’s relations with his terrorist Ziocorporate globalist Western business partners, where Russia’s commitment to its allies goes as far as business prospects with US/NATO/EU Zioterrorists allow.

    No wonder ISIS/SDF run rampant in their invasion areas south of Qamishli.

    1. Jens Holm says:

      ..And the dollar collapsed 3 times last week too.

      Putin is there because Yours are and so many dont like it.

  2. johnny rotten says:

    The SDFs are the ISIS under another name, that is the foreign Legion of NATO and Isisrahell.

    1. Furkan Sahin says:

      Isis is worse lol

      1. J Ramirez says:

        Same shit different name.

    2. Jens Holm says:

      They changed yesterday.

      They now want to put the verses and the Sharia upside down, so “men” replace women and “vomen” replace men.

      Because of the much lying fx by Johnny Rotten and many others, any comment should be supported by at least 7 men, which are not on drugs and alcohol even those are hard to find.

      Most of those sober ones seemes to have left the country.

  3. Cromwell says:

    Russia should be hitting the SDF from the air instead of trying to reason with them,they work for the US.

    1. Furkan Sahin says:

      Russia never attack SDF they can like them

      1. Jens Holm says:

        I agree. Rusians are neutral in those matters.

    2. That won’t work here, because civilians here are vulnerable and worthy, it’s not like Idlib

      1. Jens Holm says:

        I agree. That too. Its heavy populated by internal refuges too.

        1. You are a traitor, Turkey is right at your border and you attack us instead

          1. Jens Holm says:

            Thats highlæy incorrect. Both of Yopu are stupidists of the worst kind not letting people alone making them their own devellopments themself.

            You have world records in scapegoating.

            Im relative sober and relative sober too.

            Letting people decide their own destiny seemes to be for traitors in Your world. Mine is not like that.

            We have structures and fx parlaments, where we parle and vote about things. You are not even allowed how that is, when its better then any other system for improved dayly life

          2. All of Syria will be red, you will be expelled to Iranian province Kordestan where you originally come from

          3. Jens Holm says:

            No I dont. There is not that much paint.

          4. Your blood will be our paint

    3. Jens Holm says:

      So why dont they ???

  4. johnny rotten says:

    US military forces have reportedly been targeted in two separate rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) and bomb attacks in Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr, amid seething public resentment over the presence of the occupation troops in the region.


    1. Jens Holm says:

      So happynew Ramadan…

      2 was is and one was tranported by bicycle nil it was confused:)

  5. Rafik Chauhan says:

    It is the plan of SDF terriost under US command to remove SAA/Russia from Qamisli and occypy whole city and Air port. so US can take over Airport and control. This Asayish thugs should be hit hard by SAA and Russia and eliminate them Asyaish are the main problem in SDF. Russia should give warning to this Asyaish.

    1. <> says:

      Asyaish will eat you Syrain soldiers for breakfast, and the rest of the SDF will help them. The SAA should know its place in Qamishli.

      1. Jens Holm says:

        No one take that pollution for free:)

    2. verner says:

      sdf is the gate keeper for the oil rich part of syria and the proceeds from the theft of oil is the jews illegally occupying palestine – get rid of the jews and about 80 pct of the problems in the middle east will take care of themselves.

      1. Jens Holm says:

        ..And the vomen and children in Al Hol are tunneldiggers for the next pipeline for oil to Israel too.

        Jews even sell gas to Assads. Snif snif.

    3. Jens Holm says:

      No its not.

      The plan was and is, that SDFs as mainly only farmers but also a majority should control the most important citycenters.

      Those Assads supporters many times – for good and bad reasons – deny to accept those facts. By that SDFs has reduced the territory because of violent opposition agains those vital for SDFs.

      By that the Assads of course has got their local independensy reduced.

      Now when Assad are there as well as Russians, they think things has changed and try again.

      I agree those Asayish are a big problem, but as we see they also are up against hard stuff and very needed too. People like You dont understand that most parts of those Asayishs actually are normal police and here cant do thewir jobs wel because of that kind of resistance.

      USA dont need that airport at all moron. Thye easy can land Hercues or newer several places. Normal people can see it makes sense SDFs as well as USA has to be able to cross there. If anything its about roads.

      And You kind of write it Yourself. If You understand that little for those SDFs, what should they feel for You.

  6. verner says:

    syria and turkey and iraq and iran have a common interest in finishing off the sdf, quisling kurds in the knee of the disunited states of insufferable fools and compatriots with the jews illegally occupying palestine. the quicker sdf and pkk and ypg are brought back as tenants in the borderland the better and if they don’t want that, smash them for good.

    1. Jens Holm says:

      Same babling nonsense again. Those 3 has disputed against each other for centuries and use fx Kurds as spendable excuses.

  7. Jens Holm says:

    Assads are no kings there and should never be. They can take the abpve things but the local rules for local things systematic has been destroyed by them.

    Thats the base for homegrown and incomming JIhadists whatever p
    apragrphs they use and say.

    It is Ad´¨ssads did nothing for them but plundering the poorest ones as feudals did before them.

    1. Willing Conscience (The Truths says:

      Is that why the local population of al-Qamishli overwhelmingly voted for the Baathists during the last parliamentary elections, and why they’re coming out in droves supporting Assad in this current presidential election, even though they’re not allowed to vote this time around.
      Cry democracy all you like Jens but this time around it’s the US not allowing the people of Syria to have their say, why can’t the local al-Qamishli population vote in this presidential election if they want to? It’s because the local population would overwhelmingly vote for Assad, and there are many other regions and areas of the autonomous zone that Assad would be just as popular.
      If Assad was destroying the institutions in al-Qamishli as you assert, why is the locals prefer to use the Syrian Government administration to conduct their business and trade affairs over the SDC/SDF administration equivalents, and it’s not just the locals in al-Qamishli who prefer to use the Syrian Government institutions, people from areas outside of al-Qamishli and Al Hasakah prefer to do business with the Syrian Government too.

  8. Willing Conscience (The Truths says:

    From what I understand the NDF in this area are directly sponsored by Russia, so there is no need for mediation between the 2 warring parties, only direct mediation between Russia and the SDC/SDF.
    The local NDF take orders from the Russians and Asayish take their orders from the SDC, so it’s Russia and the SDC who have to mediate, not their soldiers who should be only following orders.
