Activists have told SOHR that this evening Kurdish security “Asayish” forces besieged the neighborhood of Al-Tay in Al-Qamishli city, which is inhabited by regime loyalists. According to SOHR sources, Asayish forces have arrested a high-ranking officer and another accompanying military staff.
Regime forces and Asayish were on high alert amid heightened tension in the city.

On February 12, SOHR reported that a great tension witnessed in Al- Qamishli area in rural al-Hasakah. Syrian Observatory sources said that a group of regime loyalists from Khirbet Amo village, east of Qamishli, accompanied by armed men loyalists to regime forces intercepted the road of a U.S. patrol while roaming the area there.
Regime loyalists’ gunmen fired in the air, and then U.S. patrol fired smoke bombs. The incident has evolved dramatically where U.S. forces opened fire, killing one person.
