Syrian Kurdish internal security forces arrested 60 members of a pro-Syrian government militia in the northeastern city of Qamishli on Wednesday, a war monitor said.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the Syrian conflict through a network of sources on the ground, said the Syrian Kurdish internal security forces known as the Asayish also shelled an area containing government security buildings.
Most of Qamishli is controlled by the Kurdish security forces, though the Syrian government still has a presence in the city and controls its airport.Syrian Kurdish officials and Syrian government officials could not immediately reached for comment.
