Kurdish forces take control of Syrian government administration center in Qamishlo
Kurdish Internal Security Forces (ISF) took control of Syrian government institutional buildings in Qamishlo early on Thursday, April 14, morning, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said.

The move from the ISF (Asayish) comes after the Syrian regime forces’ blockade on the Kurdish neighborhoods of Sheikh Maqsoud and Ashrafieh in Aleppo, which have been prevented from receiving supplies of basic foodstuffs, such as flour.
The SOHR said Asayish have not entered the captured government institutions and that Syrian regime forces withdrew to Security Square in Qamishlo and Asayish advanced in regime-controlled areas of Qamishli without clashes.
Rojava Information Center (RIC) said on Thursday Asayish took control of the Syrian regime administrative building compound in Qamishlo but the city was otherwise calm with packed streets despite the security operation.
Sources from the SOHR also said a meeting was scheduled for Thursday under Russia’s mediation to reach a solution on the situation in Qamishlo and Aleppo between Kurdish and regime forces. RIC said dialogue between the Syrian Kurdish Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria and the Syrian government has not reached any results so far.
Asayish reportedly took control on April 9 of al-Baath bakery in Qamishlo, which supplies civilians in regime-controlled areas of Qamishlo with supplies of bread daily, in response to the blockade in Aleppo, according to SOHR.
North Press Agency said on Tuesday the Fourth Armored Division of Syrian government forces had blocked supplies of fuel and flour into Sheikh Maqsoud and Ashrafiyeh in northern Aleppo for nearly two weeks.
The SOHR said their sources warned the residents there faced "dire humanitarian conditions” and the price of basic goods such as flour, oil, bread and sugar had skyrocketed.
