Assyrians seek self-management in Hasaka over deal with PYD
 (Zaman Al Wasl)- The  Kurdish Democratic Union militia handed its checkpoints over to the Assyrian fighters in the villages of Khabur area in Hasaka province, such a step towards the Assyrian self-Administration.

According to Assyrian sources, the Democratic Union Party handed over the village of Tal-Koran to the Assyrian armed forces, and all the Assyrian villages, checkpoints and points have become under the control and protection of the Assyrian armed forces, that would be a preparation for the "Assyrian self-Administration” in future in villages of Khabur River.

The sources added that the Democratic Assyrian Party represents both Khabour Guard and Natura as representative of Assyrians in Syria at international conferences and meetings in Geneva and Moscow.

The sources pointed out to Zaman al-Wasl that there was clashed between Assyrian militias of and People's Protection Units (YPG) and its ally the Syriac Military Council in the village of Tal-Juma, which ended with the disarming both YPG and its ally as the area has become out of their control.

Militants of PYD kept their military base above the hill, which lies in the middle of Tel-Tamer, the largest Assyrian gathering in Khabur region, the source detailed.

The Assyrian Democratic Party announced last week that Khabur has become under the protection of its people, stressing that the militia of the YPG, the military wing of the PYD have withdrew from the villages of Tal-Koran and handed them over to the militants of the council of Khabur Guard, and they have become responsible for the security file of the Assyrian villages, according to a statement of the Assyrian party.

PYD fighters had killed the field commander of the Assyrian Khabur Guard , David Gando, April 2015, in an armed trap on the road connecting the towns of Tal Tamer and Dirbasiya.

Dozens of Assyrian villages on Khabur river’s banks between the cities of Hasaka and Ras al-Ain are controlled by the Democratic Union Party and its ally the Syriac Military Council since February 2015, following attacks backed by the US-led alliance. The party had detained hundreds of Assyrians , but then they were released in batches.
