Qamishli is partially controlled between the Syrian Government and the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria. This situation has created tensions between the two sides, like the Battle of Qamishli (April 2016).
The clashes erupted on 8 September 2018. According to kurdish sources, the fighting took place after a regime patrol consisting of three vehicles entered areas controlled by the Asayish and targeted their forces with light and medium weapons, so they responded to the attack. The clashes left 11 government soldiers killed and 2 wounded and 7 Asayish members killed and one wounded.
