The Internal Security Forces (Asayish) issued a statement accusing the regime-backed “National Defense Forces” (NDF) of attacking Kurdish checkpoint in Al-Qamishli city in Al-Hasakah countryside.
SOHR obtained a copy of the statement which reads “militiamen affiliated to the regime-backed National Defense Forces threw two grenades yesterday, Thursday the 16th of April, on a checkpoint of Asayish Forces in Al-Qamishli.”
The statement illustrated that one grenade exploded, while the other one was defused, while the explosion caused material damage only.
“The area has been swept, just in case there are dangerous or explosive ordnance left by the militiamen” the statement added.
Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that unknown assailants threw a stun grenade at a checkpoint of the internal security forces “Asayish” near Haret Tay, south of Al-Qamishli. Gunfire was heard just after the explosion. No casualties were reported.
