Clashes are (again) ongoing between the pro-government forces and forces loyal to the US-backed Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) in the eastern Syria despite yesterday reports about a ceasefire agreement implemented in the city.
Heavy fighting has been ongoing in Hasakah since last night with both sides using mortars, artillery and fire arms each against other. Reports say that the Kurdish forces (YPG and Asayish) seized a post office after refusing to accept the ceasefire.
- Asayish YPG shelled Gweiren, Askari and Wasta;
- Pro-government forces in Kawkab shelled north and west Hasakah;
- Syrian warplanes are reported over the city.
Kurdish ANHA news agecny has claimed that Syrian warplanes made an airstrike on a HQ of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the area. No pics, videos, proofs have been provided.
Pro-Kurdish sources also massively dissiminate reports about some (350 and more) Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) deployed to the city and civilian casualties from the shelling of pro-government (only pro-government) forces. However, no proofs have been provided.
The fact that Kurdish and Kurdish-linked sources turned into a war propaganda-style broadcasting, along with denying any kind of a ceasefire, indicate that the PYD leadership are not going to pursue a peaceful solution on the tensions in the province.
