ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – At least four fighters were killed in fierce clashes Wednesday between Syrian army soldiers and Kurdish forces in Hasaka, a security source told Rudaw.

The clashes ignited when Syrian troops approached the Asayesh forces in Hasaka in northeastern Syria, the source said.  The asayesh forces are part of the People’s Protection Units (YPG), which controls Syria’s Kurdish regions (Rojava).

The source said the dead included at least two security agency workers and two Syrian army soldiers.

Several schools, universities and markets closed due to the clashes.

Kurds should negotiate an amicable withdrawal of Regime forces from from Hasaka. The territory east of the Euphrates is becoming more and more an SDF/US zone of control and it is probably in agreement with Russia to avoid US Russia military conflicts. US has two air bases there. These bases are a "trip wire" that will prevent any Russian or regime offensive against the SDF forces. It is time for the remaining regime forces to clear out of Rojava but should be done through negotiations!

My heart and thoughts are with the fallen Kurdish fighters and their family. The Syrian army cannot stay alive in Kurdistan. The brave Kurdish fighters of Rojawa needs and must be given help from their Kurdish people in Basur.

Pro Assad militias not Syrian Army, just as last time. Assad has almost no troops stationed in Hasaka, in fact he barely has troops on the frontlines, on many them a mix of Iranian Russian troops with Hezbollah and other militias are doing the fighting.

Just kick them out out already.

What a complex situation. Many Christian Assyrians and Muslim Arabs in Kurdish-majority areas distrust the semi-Marxist YPG. But is Assad better? International community should support an Assyrian/Chaldean/Ezidi safe-zone in Eastern Syria/Western Iraq.
