Kurdish Contras Besiege Al-Hasakah–MES EP.92
The siege imposed by the Kurdish contras known by the name “Syrian Democratic Forces” on the neighborhoods under the control of the Syrian army in the cities of Al-Hasakah and Qamishli continues in light of the escalation of the suffering of the people and the faltering of Russian efforts to find a settlement that ends the siege and restore matters to their previous state. This situation is prompting scores of Syrian residents to walk great distances to bypass the SDF checkpoints especially after one Syrian security officer was killed by the Kurdish Contras in Hasakah city.
