Attempting to break up clashes between two families | Asayish member injured in Al-Qamishli city

Al-Hasakah province: A member of the Internal Security Forces (Asayish) was injured with an indiscriminate gunshot, while attempting to break up clashes between two families in Al-Antariyah neighbourhood in Al-Qamishli city in northern Al-Hasakah. The reasons behind those clashes remain unknown.


Meanwhile, a state of tension and disorder prevail in the region, amid appeals by residents to the city’s elders and dignitaries to interfere and settle the despite between the two families.


This coincides with the escalating security chaos in SDF-controlled areas.


Accordingly, the number of infightings which followed disputes over retaliation and family and tribal disagreements in areas controlled by the Autonomous Administration has reached 59 since early 2024.
