De-Escalation: SDF Withdraws From Government Buildings In Syria’s Al-Qamishli (Photos)

On April 14 afternoon, the security body of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), known as Asayish, withdrew from a number of government buildings in the northeastern town of al-Qamishli that it had occupied in the morning.

Asayish personnel occupied the buildings in a bid to pressure Damascus into ending a siege imposed by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on the SDF-held district of Sheikh Maqsoud in Aleppo city. The siege began a few weeks earlier in response to an alleged attack by militants hiding in the district.

In a statement, Asayish denied that its personnel occupied government buildings in al-Qamishli. The security force claimed that it just “tightened” its security measures around the government-held “security zone”.

“We will continue these security measures around the security zone in al-Qamishli until the siege on our people in Sheikh Maqsoud district is lifted,” the statement reads.

The Asayish withdrawal is meant to de-escalate tensions with the Damascus government. Russia efforts were likely behind the withdrawal.

The crisis between the SDF and Damascus will likely end soon. The SDF needs the protection of Russian forces and the SAA to stop Turkish forces from invading its areas in northern and northeastern Syria.

While neither the SDF or Damascus are interested in a military confrontation, the two sides remain far from a political agreement. The SDF continue to be the main proxy of the US in Syria.

SDF = Zion regime in Syria, Kurds worship Zion 24/7. One look at SDF “leaders” and you get the picture – Gang terrorists set up by the US under orders of Zion.

It is funny to see morons cry for Zion pigs LMFAO. 18 Sep 2019 – SDF kidnaps dozens of orphans and hundreds of youths in eastern Syria

Geneva- The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor expressed deep concern over the Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) reported abduction of dozens of orphaned children and hundreds of youths from refugee camps in north-eastern Syria, isolating them in camps for recruitment, which amounts to a war crime. According to relief sources, most of the children are between the ages of 13 to 16, including orphans and non-Syrians.

According to local reports, the so-called military police and the Asayish forces, the security arms of SDF, arrested hundreds of young people of the Arab tribes this week at two checkpoints, Al-Numatli and Alaya, east of the city of Qamishli, and at the checkpoints of Sabbagh and Al-Sarafis as well as at Al-Quds park, Marshou, al-Kahrabah and al-Nashwa roundabouts in al-Hasaka. Who are these Asayish “force” Mossad pigs. The Asayish are the Kurdish internal security forces and fulfil various security roles that range from police to counterterrorism.

Imad added that international law prohibits non-state armed groups from recruiting any person under the age of 18. In addition, recruiting children under the age of 15 is considered to be a war crime.

THIS IS ONLY ONE CASE. The more you read into these gang terrorists you understand that they are only Zion-US pigs for future wars.

BTW, these terrorists gang control most of Daesh – YUP and we saw why they hold them for… Kill cancer before it is too late.

When war finally ceases in Syria, the SDF will be the next puppet for US to use as a ‘regime’ change instrument. Rinse & repeat.
