Syria, war between pro-Turkey militias intensifies in Kurdistan

War between pro-Turkish militias intensifies in Kurdistan. Prolonged clashes between Sultan Murad, Ahrar al-Sharqiya and the Hamza Division in Sere Kaniye. The TAF impose a curfew. The cause is always the resources

New chapter of the war between pro-Turkey militias in northern Syria. A few days ago the Sultan Murad, Ahrar al-Sharqiya and the Hamza Division groups started fighting each other in Sere Kaniye (Ras al-Ain) in Kurdistan. So much so that the TAF had to impose a curfew in the city, even for their allies, arresting several guerrillas. This seems to be due to the unrest caused and the fact that some artillery shells ended up inside the Turkish territory. What caused the chaos to break out was the usual reason: resources and in particular foodstuffs. The cut in aid by Ankara and the exclusive management of the few remaining by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) are, in fact, fueling the internal conflicts between the minor factions, now willing to do anything not to lose their reserves or to recover new ones to the detriment of competitors.

In the midst of the “war between the poor” there is the local population, increasingly in difficulty

In the midst of the war between pro-Turkish militias in northern Syria, there is the local population, increasingly in difficulty. Especially in the areas controlled by the TAF in Kurdistan. For example, residents of Sere Kaniye were ordered to stay in their homes following a curfew. On the streets of the city, only armed men from various factions and the Ankara army are seen. This implies that civilians cannot go to work and shop to buy the few goods still available. The para-military groups in the area, in fact, continue to kidnap them for their own needs. Especially basic goods such as food. Consequently, the situation in the quadrant is destined to worsen. Both on the security front and on the of the social emergency one.
