US-Backed SDF Blocks Syrian Gov’t’s Humanitarian Aid to Hasaka

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) stopped a humanitarian aid convoy sent by the Syrian government from entering Hasaka.

The Arabic-language al-Watan Online reported on Monday that the SDF has stopped a convoy of the Syrian Red Crescent and Red Cross societies sent to the flooded people in the villages of Tal Hamis and Tal Borak in Northern Hasaka from entering the region, forcing them to return to Qamishli.

Recent flash floods in regions occupied by Kurds in Northern Hasaka have destroyed houses and taken a toll from the population.

Meantime, field sources in Hasaka reported that the SDF has detained a number of civilians in different districts of Hasaka city, including Tal Hajar, Qawiran, al-Aziziyeh and al-Salehiyeh, with the aim of recruiting more fighters.

Field sources from Hasaka province reported last month that the rallies were held to protest at SDF’s incapability to supply the needs of people in the province.

The flood-hit people in the province are suffering lack of basic needs and commodities, hygiene and cold, the locals said.
