Al-Qamishli: Free Syrian Army launches offensive

KURDWATCH, April 18, 2013—On April 11, 2013, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) began a push to take al‑Qamishli. It bombarded the militarily important airport with surface-to-surface missiles from several of the Arab villages it controls about ten kilometers south of the city. Government troops responded in turn with surface-to-surface missiles. The fighting lasted around twenty-four hours. At least two FSA missiles struck residences about two kilometers north of the airport; there were no fatalities or injuries among the civilian population. There is no information about the number of victims among the combatants. Thousands of residents left their homes near the airport.
