End of tensions in Qamishli?
ISWNews Analysis Group: Talks continue between the YPG and the Syrian National Defense Forces (NDF) over the al-Tai neighborhood.
Last night, a temporary ceasefire agreement was reached between the YPG and the NDF in the city of Qamishli, mediated by Russia until 10 A.M.
The ceasefire has been extended so far and talks are still going on in al-Tai neighborhood. The Syrian army is demanding the withdrawal of YPG forces from al-Tai neighborhood and the transfer of control to the Syrian army and Russian military police. YPG forces, on the other hand, strongly oppose this.
Local sources report that the Syrian army has sent more troops to the Znood neighborhood south of Qamishli. The Syrian army seems to be using the opportunity to strengthen its position in Qamishli.
