BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – The spokesperson for the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG), Nuri Mahmud, released an official statement on Friday that discussed the recent clashes between the pro-government National Defense Forces (NDF) and Asayish (Kurdish police).

“On September 8th, an unfortunate clash broke out between the Asayish and the regime forces in the city of Qamishlo, leading to a number of dead and injured on both sides. Also, it created an atmosphere of tension and stress in the city of Qamishlo,” Mahmud began.

“As a General Command of the People’s Protection Units, we extend condolences to the families of the victims and express our deep sorrow over what happened. In that same time, we confirm that as YPG, we also have opened an investigation concerning incident,” he continued.

“The results of the investigation will be revealed as soon as it will be completed. We call both sides to calm down and take the general interest as a starting point in the search for solutions,” the YPG spokesperson added.

The clashes that took place on September 8th resulted in the death of at least 11 Syrian military personnel and 7 Kurdish fighters.

Asayish are not “fighters”, they are cops…
Never a good thing to mess with cops : cops use hollowpoint expanding bullets that are banned from military use. These are way more lethal since wound cavities are of larger diameter by a 2-3 factor : hollow points expand on impact while FMJ military rounds don’t…

They must have bought those bullets in Israel.

I don’t think they bought many bullets since WE GIVE THEM weapons and ammos, actually, even Putin and… Bashar are giving weapons to YPG…

By essence, politically, YPG have no masters since their ideology principle is “No God, no master” unlike vile servants of the rafidah snakes in Tehran.

I am all in for a good conspiracy theory, but you D-S are topping it all with your “Shia is bad, trust me they are ISIS” drivel. Iranians are loosing their best young men in a fight against ISIS and mostly by the hand of US and the “coalition” of the killing, so if the US is defending ISIS and in many cases openly admitted supporting/helping/paying/creating them (Hillary’s admission of sending weapons to them), what are your argument for your unbelievable theory? Either put up or shut up…

Actually, the only ones that could be called traitors in the Rojava case, would be SAA since they DIDN’T fulfilled their duty of evacuating the Kurdish population when they ended under threat from FSA the ISIS… Hadn’t they first called Paris and Berlin (near 18 months b4 calling the Yanks too), there’d had been a Turkey+Iran sponsored Kurdish genocide.
Better deal with the Kuffar : when you’re Kurd, you can’t rely either on Syrian or Iraqi govt except at letting you into Turkish takfiri and Iranian rafidahs puppets’ hands to be slaughtered.
