Conflicts A- A A+

Armed clashes between terrorists from YPG/PKK and Daesh/ISIS continued in northern Syria for the 6th consecutive day, local sources said Tuesday, Yeni Safak reports. 

Daesh/ISIS terrorists are fighting for control after breaking out of a YPG/PKK-run prison last week in the Guweiran region.

As the clashes spread from the Gweiran Prison to the Euphrates University campus in the city of Al-Hasakah, the US-led anti-Daesh/ISIS coalition and YPG/PKK deployed additional forces to the area, the sources told Anadolu Agency requesting anonymity.

Coalition helicopters and aircraft also conducted airstrikes against the Daesh/ISIS terrorists late Monday night, the sources added.

Meanwhile, YPG/PKK transferred at least 600 people, mainly Daesh/ISIS terrorists, to the city of Qamishli.

Local sources said at least 30 YPG/PKK terrorists were killed in the clashes. However, Daesh/ISIS claimed the killings of 200 YPG/PKK terrorists.

YPG/PKK claimed that 300 Daesh/ISIS terrorists surrendered but did not reveal the casualties it suffered.

In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Turkiye, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkiye, the US, and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of at least 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is the PKK's Syrian offshoot.
