Internal Security Forces of North and East Syria besieged regime’s security square in Hasakah in response to stopped Holob convoys

HASAKAH, Syria — Due to the Syrian regime’s refusal to allow food and fuel shipments from North and East Syria to the northern countryside of Holob (Aleppo) and the Shahba region under the control of the Democratic Autonomous Administration (DAA), the Internal Security Forces (ISF) of the DAA surrounded the security square controlled by regime forces in the city of Hasakah to pressure the regime into allowing the convoys to deliver their goods.

The escalation prompted Russia, which claims to be a peace mediator between them, to intervened by bringing an addition 300 Russian soldiers to Zalin (Qamishli) Airport.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, in an annual press conference, claimed that there was no intention to confront the U.S. in Syria, demanding the U.S. “not to use force against the Syrian regime.”

In related news, the regime asked its followers to demonstrate against the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the U.S.-led International Coalition. Dozens of employees of the Syrian regime took to streets yesterday, protesting in front of the regime’s Justice Palace in the city of Hasakah.
