Asayish ask population to report suspicious activities in Syria’s Qamishli and Hasakah

QAMISHLI, Syria (North Press) – On Sunday, the city of Qamishli, northeast Syria, witnessed tighten security measures at the checkpoints of the Internal Security Forces (Asayish), in tandem with the continued cordon-off of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to al-Sina’a prison in Hasakah, and combing campaigns in search of ISIS sleeper cells militants.

The tighten security procedures in the city have come in anticipation of the possible activity of sleeper cells in the city, North Press reported a security source in Qamishli. 

“ISIS cells members may try to carry out activities aimed at destabilizing security in coincidence with what is happening in Hasakah,” he added.

Yesterday, two people riding a motorcycle cast a sound bomb near the Asayish checkpoint in al-Khalij Street in Qamishli. 

On Sunday morning, the Asayish, through its accounts on social networking sites, called on the residents to report “anything unusual.” 

The Internal Security Forces in northeast Syria published on their Facebook account the numbers for reporting in the cities of Hasakah: 0935142722 and Qamishli: 0935879205. 

The SDF continues to cordon off al-Sina’a prison, which houses thousands of ISIS detainees, with the aim of regaining control over it, in tandem with a combing campaign in Guweiran neighborhood surrounding the prison in search of three ISIS sleeper cells members who carried out an attack three days ago.
