Units of the Russian Military Police have reportedly increased their presence in the area of Qamishly city following the recent increase of tensions between pro-government forces and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the area.
Late on April 16, a checkpoint of the SDF security forces, Asayish, in northern al-Hasakah was attacked with two hand grenades. One of the grenades exploded inside the checkpoint. The second one was defused by Asayish. No SDF member was killed.
