Kurds push for future in post-Assad era

Locals in northeastern city of Qamishli try to hold territory ahead of possible fall of government.

    Kurds in the northeastern province of al-Hasakeh are working to ensure a future in the new Syria, as battles rage in different parts of country.

    While the government is still strong in Hasakeh's city of Qamishli, it is granting more freedom to Kurds.

    In their crackdown on protests Security forces reportedly refrained from using excessive force against people in Qamishli, and went as far as allowing the Kurdish flag to fly high over the city.
