ANALYSIS: The strategic significance of Russia’s new base in Syria’s northeastern city of Qamishli is currently being debated. As is the question of whether it is intended as a message from Moscow to Ankara.
Where the US has attempted to reduce its footprint in Syria, Russia has stepped in -- confirming Thursday that it’s setting up a new base in northern city of Qamishli. After recent terror attacks, the region is especially vulnerable, @charliecbs reports
This is Qamishli city in North Syria after Turkish attacks. @akhbar
CCTV footage shows panicked ISIS prisoners & guards fleeing a prison outside Qamishli this afternoon after a mortar strike. The SDF says 5 ISIS prisoners got away
You want to know what many Kurds in Northern Syria think of U.S. President Trump right now? Well, listen to Mr Suleiman who I met today in Syrian city of Qamishli, meters away from the spot where earlier a shell killed two people.
1/ Blood on the streets of Qamishli, Northern Syria. This afternoon I visited spot in a civilian neighbourhood shortly after two people were killed in Turkish shelling. As I visited Qamishli, I heard more cracking explosions. We had to run for safety. Scary atmosphere. @akhbar
1/ Shooting 10 minutes ago very near to us as we were driving through the city of Qamishli in northern #Syria . We filmed the incident on our phone. Unedited footage. This is what happened. We're safe now. @akhbar
