New fighting broke out Sunday morning between Assad terrorists and allied militias on the one side, and Asayish forces, affiliated with Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), on the other.

Kurdish media outlets said that fighting renewed between Asayish forces and the regime-affiliated “National Defense” militia in the neighborhoods of al-Ghoweiran and al-Nashwa in al-Hasaka, amid artillery and mortar shelling on al-Kallaseh and al-Nashwa al-Sharqiya neighborhoods.

Assad regime’s al-Hasaka governor, Mohamed Zaal al-Ali, called on officials in PYD to negotiate, according to Rudaw agency.

“Let us resolve the problem on the negotiations table,” he said. “In order for the quiet to return to al-Hasaka, we call on PYD officials to negotiate, and solve the problem on negotiation table,” al-Ali continued.

“PYD should use its arms to fight ISIS, not the regime,” al-Ali added. However, PYD officials gave no response to these calls.
