MESOP LATEST ON QAMISHLI : NDF, Assyrian Forces Seize Qamishli Corniche in Kurdish District

The Arab tribes from the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Gozarto Protection Forces (GPF) reportedly imposed full control over the Qamishli Corniche on Friday morning after a night filled with intense firefights.

According to local sources, the NDF and GPF counter-assault was concentrated on securing the government-controlled districts, while also forcing the Asayish (Kurdish police) to stop targeting the Qamishli Security Box.

All claims of the Asayish and People’s Protection Units (YPG) seizing the Qamishli Military Airport have been denied as well. Currently, delegates from the Syrian government and YPG are meeting at the Qamishli Military Airport in order to end the violence. The YPG originally demanded that all government forces leave the city; however, this was rejected by the government delegation.Based on the latest reports from Qamishli, both sides have come to a mutual agreement to end the violence.
