After being closed during Syrian war | Committee formed by the regime removes checkpoints and opens roads inside Al-Hasakah

Al-Hasakah province: SOHR activists have reported that the regime’s security forces, with the help of the police and the Civil Defence, have removed several security checkpoints within the regime’s security field in Al-Hasakah, to facilitate passing in front of civilians, after they were closed during the Syrian war.

This comes after the formation of a committee to remove the checkpoints in the city.

According to reliable SOHR sources, a checkpoint in Al-Samara St. near the stadium in the opposite side of “Al-Ba’ath Party” was removed and became opened under the eyes of residents, a checkpoint in Fara’ Al-Hazb St. was also removed, the vicinity of the Military Police, the vicinity of the clock towards Ghuwayran and some neighbourhoods in Al-Hasakah.

On April 25, SOHR activists reported that the Internal Security Forces “Asayish” reopened the highway between Al-Qamishly market and Nasibin crossing at borders with Turkey, after it had been closed for over 11 years by the regime forces.
The highway connected the centre of the city to its northern part, and passes adjacent to the security zone and the old French barracks, which holds Security and Military regime branches.
This came as part of the pressure by Asayish Forces on the regime forces inside the security zone in Al-Qamishly.
