Syrian regime stops exporting flour to bread bakeries in Autonomous Administration’s areas in Al-Hasakah and Al-Qamishli

Al-Hasakah Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: Reliable sources have informed SOHR that the Syrian regime has stopped providing bread bakeries in neighbourhoods under the control of the Autonomous Administration in Al-Hasakah and Al-Qamishli cities with flour in the wake of the recent developments and growing tension between both sides.


Yesterday, SOHR activists monitored a normal movement in the regime-controlled neighbourhoods and areas in the cities of al-Hasakah and al-Qamishli, after the recent tension in the region. Internal Security Forces “Asayish” allowed civilians to travel comfortably between the neighbourhoods under their control and the regime-controlled neighbourhoods in al-Hasakah and al-Qamishli.


Furthermore, SOHR sources confirmed that the reports circulated on the pro-regime media outlets of banning the entry flour by Asayish Forces to regime-held neighbourhoods, were untrue.


This development came after the end of the dispute and tension between the two sides, and after mediations by Russia on February 2.


SOHR sources had said earlier that the Internal Security Forces “Asayish” reopened the roads leading to “Al-Tay” neighbourhoods, which is under the control of the Syrian regime in the city of al-Qamishli, after the closure of roads and the siege on regime for 23 days. Civilians were allowed to travel comfortably in their cars after normal traffic returned to the region, along with reopening the roads which had been blocked by Asayish Forces in the security zone.
